Advocating 4 Kids -Summer Learning: IEP Goal Development
DESCRIPTION This program will assist parents and/or guardians of children with disabilities in learning how to effectively create goals for their child's IEP. Our goal is to provide you with the tools you need to develop and recognize IEP goals that are measurable, ambitious, relevant, and address the specific needs of your child. *Each session can be attended individually at $30.00 or as a package ( pre-pay ) to attend all three sessions at $75.00
Session 1: Mapping out Information for Producing Good Goals
The purpose of this session is to teach attendees how to identify what information is crucial in developing IEP goals. As well as to review the purpose and power of the present Level of Performance and Functioning in developing SMART goals.
Session 2: Writing IEP Goals
This session will teach attendees the meaning of measurable as it relates to IEP goal development and how to recognize and write SMART IEP goals.
Session 3: Criteria - The Standard to Measure Process
Once the goal is written it is important to understand how the process will be measured. This session will teach you how to set ambitious but realistic outcomes for progress towards IEP goals.
Each session will be presented by Cheryl A Poe, M.A., who is both a Special Education Advocate and Advocacy Coach. Participation in the sessions are crucial and the following is required at each session:
