    Good ways to approach a parent about their child include, going over a script with your co-worker to be prepared for some expected questions or defensiveness. You should also have collected a good amount of objective data to show parents so they can feel secure in your assessments. Also make sure to have a list of local resources so parents know what they should do next.

    You should know that this will likely be an alarming and hard conversation for parents and its best to be prepared to calm that anxiety and show them the right way forward.
