How does the Early Intervention Program (EIP) support each child's learning?

  • Targeted Instruction: The Early Intervention Program (EIP) offers targeted instruction in core academic subjects, such as reading and math This additional instruction is designed to help students who are struggling in these subjects catch up to their peers and achieve grade-level proficiency.
  • Small Group: The Early Intervention Program (EIP) classes are typically smaller in size compared to regular classrooms, which allows for more individualized attention. Students may receive one-on-ne or small-group instruction from qualified educators, making it easier to address their specific learning needs.
  • Differentiated Instruction: Early Intervention Program (EIP) teachers often use differentiated instruction techniques to tailor their teaching methods to the diverse learning styles and needs of students. This helps ensure that each student receives instruction that is appropriate for their abilities.

What can a parent or guardian do at home to support their child's Early Intervention Program experiences?

Supporting a child enrolled in Advanced/Accelerated courses requires a multifaceted approach that blends academic encouragement, emotional support, and fostering a conducive learning environment. Here's a detailed guide for parents and guardians:

  • Set up a dedicated and organized study space at home with necessary supplies, such as pens, paper, and a computer.
  • Establish a regular daily routine with designated study or homework times.

Communicate with Teachers:

  • Stay in touch with your child's teachers to understand their curriculum and expectations.
  • Attend parent-teacher conferences to discuss your child's progress and any areas that need improvement.

Encourage Reading:

  • Promote a love for reading by providing age-appropriate books and reading together regularly.
  • Discuss what your child is reading, ask questions, and encourage them to share their thoughts.

Be Patient and Supportive:

  • Recognize that every child learns at their own pace and may have different strengths and weaknesses.
  • Provide emotional support, praise, and encouragement to boost their confidence.

Remember that supporting your child's learning is an ongoing process. By creating a nurturing and supportive environment at home, you can help your child develop a strong foundation for academic success and a lifelong love for learning.
