Back to School
It’s that time of the year again – summer is coming to an end and parents are getting their children ready to go back to school. Every student follows a similar checklist such as buying new notebooks, packing up a backpack, and reviewing their new schedule. For Turner’s girls, adding a few more things to that checklist can help ensure that the school year goes smoothly.
Turner Syndrome is characterized by learning issues, which can include visuospatial organization and math abilities. It’s important that educators, school psychologists, and school nurses are aware of the implications in the classroom and are prepared to collaborate for the best outcome.
To help you with the transition of returning to school this year, we’ve created two guides! For older students, we have the “Back to school Survival guide,” which features a checklist of items you may have forgotten – like checking in with your school psychologist or purchasing your Emergency Contact Card! This is especially great for students making the transition to a new middle or high school!
For younger students, we have the “Super Student Adventure Guide” Going back to school doesn’t have to be a negative experience and this guide will help make it fun! With a superhero printable to color and kid-friendly checklist, going back to school this year can be an adventure!

Encourage your teachers to visit, too, to ensure they have all of the knowledge necessary to assist your student!
Good luck this year! We hope it’s the best one yet!
