When you need inspiration for your child’s vision statement, follow Dr. Solone’s instructions in this video. During our IEP explorations with Dr. Solone, one parent visualized her son picking up his backpack and happily going to school without fear of bullying, shaming, or being left out.

Try this visualization exercise: think of one word that describes how you want others to view your child. Multiple parents said they wanted their child to be seen as capable, independent, and happy, as well as creative, artistic, imaginative, and kind.
