This chapter is designed to help parents keep track of and record their child’s attendance, level of distress, and morning behavior problems. The chapter is designed to assist parents in becoming more aware of a child’s actual time in school, identify how their child’s behavior changes during the week, discover why their child is having trouble attending school, seeing whether the methods in the book are indeed working, exchange more detailed information with school officials and others, and look for signs that a school attendance problem may be recurring after the initial problem was fixed. Worksheets are provided to assist parents in these tasks and to ease communication with school officials. An introduction is given regarding different reasons why students have trouble attending school to steer parents in the right directions in the book.
