- What do you want your child to achieve this year?
- What are your long-range goals for her?
- What do you want your child to be able to do when she leaves the public school system?
- What steps do you need to take to help your child meet these goals?
As a parent, it is your responsibility to make long-term plans for your child.
Would you build a house without a blueprint? Would you start a new business without a business plan?
Would you raise a child with a disability without a master plan?
Your master plan helps you stay focused, anticipate problems, and prepare for the future.
The vision statement is a visual picture that describes your child in the future.
- What does the future hold?
- Do you envision your child getting additional education and training?
- Do you see your child working at a job and raising a family?
- Will you child be member of the community?
What does your child need to be prepared for “further education, employment and independent living?” (20 U.S.C. Section 1400 (d))
How to Make a One Page Profile of Your Child
The author of “our three little birds” created this format, influenced by her local organization, Down Syndrome Network Oregon (DSNO).
She shares “how to” create a One Page Profile and shares the template she used on her site.
I love the idea of creating something like this for a new teacher or team that is working with my child!!
