When families have concerns about their child, they may come to you, their child’s teacher, for support. They may have recently noticed a behavior that’s out of the ordinary for their child. Or they may have observed a pattern of behaviors over time. 

Families may turn to you as they seek out answers. This is especially true if you’ve built a relationship of communication and partnership from the beginning of the school year. This foundation will help families feel more comfortable sharing their concerns with you. How can you make the conversation as supportive and productive as possible? 

In this article, we asked the Understood Teacher Fellows to share their experiences. Read their stories about how they’ve responded in these situations to support students and families alike. You can also download a one-page printable of sentence starters based on these tips.
