All About Me – Did you ever wish you could find a way to introduce your child to the professionals that support him or her? This document was created by parents of children with disabilities for the purpose of providing important information to the professionals that spend time supporting their children. This booklet is easy to personalize for your individual child. Just print it out, fill it out and share with the people you feel need to know about your child. This booklet was created through a collaboration with the Mississippi PTI and Louisiana Parent Training and Information Center. Families Helping Families of Jefferson is excited to share our new, refreshed, colorful, and fun, “All About Me!” tool for families and the all new, “My Portfolio”.
The new “All About Me!” is for students between Pre-K – 5th grade. The all new “My Portfolio” has the same purpose as “All About Me!” with a more mature style, and is for pre-teens and young adults.
