Summer School Series

Huge mistake if... the Present Levels section on your child's IEP shows only test scores and grades! It is about much more than that.

The Present Levels are a critical part of the IEP - the foundation for everything else.

As a parent, your input is most important during the IEP team's assessment of your child's present levels of performance.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will find out that parents must learn how to design accurate and up-to-date Present Levels. Learn why parent input is so important during this part of developing the IEP.

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

Present Levels are a Critical Part of the IEP

What is a PLAAFP? Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance.

The Present Levels describe your child's unique needs that result from his disability.

The term "performance" describes what your child can do.


Where Does the Team Get Present Levels Information?

Present levels are based on data from objective assessments.

If the IEP fails to establish a baseline for setting annual goals and monitoring progress, the IEP may be found to deny FAPE.


Present Levels, Measurable Goals, & Services

The present levels of performance are the foundation for everything else in the IEP. If your starting point is fundamentally flawed, then everything that comes after that is flawed, too.
