IEP Topics for the NEW YEAR!

goals iep self advocacy special education technology

This past week I was consulting with awesome special needs parents who are ready to make 2018 THE year that their child makes BREAKTHROUGHS at school.  After reviewing their paperwork and really listening to their concerns... 4 areas became a priority.

1. Technology: We need really take advantage of how technology can help their daughter become more independent and assist in learning both academic and non-academic skills.

2. PLOP (Present Levels of Performance): Updated PLOPs are needed so we can work as a team and make appropriate decisions for next steps.

3. Self Advocacy: This little girl (3rd grade) needs a voice in her school day. Knowing how to ask for help or express when you don't like things without melting down is so important!

4. FBA-BIP: An updated Functional Behavior Analysis (FBA) is needed so we can make sure, as a team that the Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) is moving in the right direction.

If these areas sound like needs your child has and you're ready to be proactive & collaborative to make it happen. JOIN ME on January 9th and I'll teach you how
