IEP Progress Report

Posted Mar 11 2010 6:18am

These progress reports are as enlightening as the IEPs themselves. Our next IEP meeting is the end of the month. Here are some direct quotes from the report just received.

(And note the new poll of the day on the right.)

Measurable Annual Goal: What challenging, yet attainable, goal can we expect the student to meet by the end of this IEP period? How will we know that the student has reached this goal?

Pearlsky will use a variety of communication techniques to request activities, objects or to initiate interactions with peers and adults.

We will know that Pearlsky has reached this goal when her intentions are known to communication partners.

[What the heck does that mean? "... when her intentions are known ..." how do you possibly know her intentions if she has no communication? Whatever random, or even purposeful, action she does, how do you prescribe her "intention"?]

Benchmark/Objectives: What will the student need to do to complete this goal?

Pearlsky will respond to her activity book containing questions and choices by hitting the “yes” switch if she is interested in participating in the activity.

[And you will differentiate between "I am interested in participating in this activity so I am hitting the yes switch" and the ever present "I am hitting this thing because I just pooped" ... how?]


Measurable Annual Goal: What challenging, yet attainable, goal can we expect the student to meet by the end of this IEP period? How will we know that the student has reached this goal?

Pearlsky will participate in visual activities with decreasing verbal prompts.

Benchmark/Objectives: What will the student need to do to complete this goal?

Pearlsky will respond to a visual stimulus with a physical motion.
Pearlsky will respond to a visual stimulus by shifting her gaze along the path of the stimulus.

[What a proud dad I am. My daughter will look without being told to look and respond by moving ... something. Anything, any physical motion while her eyes are open and she meets this goal. I had a dimestore turtle that did that.]
