As educators we often take for granted that parents may not understand the language of education. This handout is jargon-free and uses easy-to-understand language to provide parents with information about providing wait time. It includes an overview, description of what providing wait time looks like in school, why we provide wait time, and most importantly, accessible ideas for how parents can use the strategy of providing wait time at home to help their child.
Strategy Spotlight handouts are perfect for accompanying your monthly newsletter or to share at parent-teacher conferences, IEP meetings, or in the context of I&RS or RTI meetings. The Strategy Spotlight Series provides answers to questions parents are asking and unites teachers and families as partners in education- because in a perfect world, that's how it should be!
