    I think the key is to have open communication with parents so they are aware of their child’s strengths as well as any red flags or issues developmentally. Chatting weekly, or even daily, about progress is key. Then, when there is a need for further screening, it will be a natural conversation with this parent you have built a working relationship with. Being empathetic, caring, and professional is key. Looking over the documentation and determining next steps together is important. Partnership is crucial!
