Predict and list questions for discussion that parents may have following the presentation.
As with the other PowerPoint presentations we have worked on, it is best go item by item. It looks like there are 7 items here. Since you need 12-18 slides, consider 2 slides for each of these, and then a title slide and a closing slide. That would make for 16 slides. In addition, I recommend, as always, you take my notes for each item, and pull out 2 or 3 key points to include on each slide, with a good format or graphic/visual on each. Then, in the note section of each slide, insert the rest of the notes, along with your own thoughts and ideas. Again - just my suggestion.
Here we go:

As with disabilities of most types, it is best to have early intervention with ID students. For parents, this is even more critical because they may feel completely helpless when their child is first diagnosed with and intellectual disability. Their initial concerns will range from how their children will make friends, to will they develop normally, and eventually to whether or not their child will be even able to live on their own when they grow up. Successful interventions for professionals and parents involve getting involved with other parents who are going through the same thing and are dealing with the same issues. They can change ideas with one another and seek counsel about a host of daily occurrences that they are experiencing with their ID student. Some resources that are effective and should be sought out as an intervention are educations programs, national networks and national advocacy organizations that work specifically with families that have an ID student. Interventions need to be sought out for many areas of the life of an ID student, but these in particular:
- What type of classroom will my child best excel in?
- What activities will my ID student perform well at and how can the parent promote those activities?
- Socially, under what conditions will my child best it, and what conditions?
- What are some intervention methods to help my ID child improve his or her social skills?
- What are some intervention methods that are best designed to help my child improve his or her behavior?
- Will medication improve my ID child's mood or behavior and what medication would be ...
