Pete Wright presents a Wrightslaw Special Education Law & Advocacy Training ConferenceSpecial Education Law & Advocacy Training Schedule

What can you do if the school wants to measure progress on IEP goals by "teacher observations" or "teacher made tests," not objective tests of academic achievement and functional performance?

You need to learn about...

  • your parent role
  • getting SMART goals in your child's IEP
  • requirements for measurable academic and functional goals
  • measuring progress
  • accommodations and modifications

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you learn that good IEPs have specific goals and objectives. They include clear descriptions of the knowledge and skills that will be taught and how your child’s progress will be measured.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

SMART IEPs for Behavior Problems

The SMART process is the same for any goal - academic or behavioral. You need to clearly define the target behavior. The school needs to gather baseline data on the behavior before developing specific measurable goals.
