Back to School
Schools around the area have nearly all started back up and kids everywhere are getting back into the swing of classes. Hope you enjoyed the summer! One of the best things about the new school year is the fresh start it provides. Even if the last year didn't end as well, or there were problems in a classroom, the new year brings new classmates, new teachers, new environments, and new things to learn. This first month is a good opportunity to get to know about your child's new school environment, and if your child has a learning disability, and is on an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) now is a good time to review it to make sure it is meeting your child's needs. 

If you have concerns about your child in school and feel he or she may have a learning disability, you can contact your local school district's special education office for information, or contact our office. Additionally, there is a LOT of information about IEP's at  In fact, the website has articles that cover nearly any topic or concern you might have as a parent of a child with a learning disability or attention issue. If you don't know what an IEP or 504 plan is, this is also a good place to start.

One more note -- if you still need to get that back-to-school physical completed, or your child needs to get caught up on the last few booster vaccines, please call our office (413-584-8700) and let us know. We'll find a way to get you in for a checkup, or a nursing visit to update the vaccines, or we can talk with your school to coordinate if need be.
