This workshop focuses on teaching the S.M.A.R.T.E.R steps framework that SLPS can use to develop legally compliant IEP goals. The presentation explains the following components of an IEP goal: (1) Specific; (2) Measurable; (3) Attainable; (4) Research-based; (5) Teachable; (6) Evaluated/communicated to parents, and (7) Relevant to state standards.
Session Objectives/Learner Outcomes:
The participants will be able to define the three components of 'individualized' for IEPS as related to goal development; Identify the 7 components of a SMARTER IEP goal as these align with federal mandates; and write an IEP goal containing the SMARTER components using a template or district's goal page model form.
