A child may rely heavily on organizational supports. Very likely organizational problems, if supports are “faded out”, will re-appear. There will appear to be a relapse. The need for organizational supports reflects executive function deficits, not a maturational one. Certain types of organizational supports (such as checklists) are often necessary in order for the student to be successful. The school can’t pull away supports that may be necessary for successful performance. Rather your child should be taught to independently use these supports that are necessary for his or her successful performance in order to have a life-long tool to shore up weakness in executive skills.
My child was doing very well with using a checklist to get his work done in school. The school wants to do away with this support so he can attain a greater level of independence.
What are my options?
