What is the parents’ reaction to the process of creating an FP?

Parents sometimes find listing all their concerns difficult, but they do also feel that they’re being taken seriously. The FP is really helpful for the purpose of gaining insight into all concerns that are present.

How are parents involved, and when do you apply the FP?

Parents answer the same questions as teachers or care providers. It is usually the teacher that first involves the parents with the FP. By laying the completed profiles side-by-side, a thorough overview is formed of concerns and opportunities that are present.

Do parents sometimes have trouble filling out a profile?

Some parents will need extra assistance when completing a profile. This is comparable to what would be needed for other questionnaires.

You’ve completed the FP: how to proceed

Processing a completed FP calls for a skilled analysis. There is training available, and it can also be purchased as a service from YOEP. The end product is a powerful report containing comprehensive description, analysis and advice. The advice given is aimed at the entire system of care surrounding the child, including teachers, parents and other aspects of the child’s care environment.

Privacy is important

A parent does not want to see information about a child end up out on the street.

Modern systems keep privacy-sensitive information separate from other data. Our servers are situated in the Netherlands, where they conform fully to requirements laid out in the privacy agreement that exists between educational institutions and the ICT industry, thus ensuring privacy to the greatest extent possible.
