This year, we started a mentorship program where staff members are matched with their OAA small group/individual and take time to develop a positive relationship with their students. Taking an OAA can be stressful. We want students to be as comfortable as possible when they work on their assessments, so a positive relationship with their test administrator can be extremely beneficial.
I created a weekly note template that I am using to write a message to my student. I also include puzzles and other treats that I know my student will enjoy.
