SPD 300 Benchmark- Case Study: PLAAFP and Annual Goals

Details:

The IEP is an essential part of each student’s special   education program and plays a large part in the role of special   education teacher responsibilities. Special education teachers must   include all of the information needed to describe the student’s   strengths, needs, background information, etc. All of this information   is used to develop an effective program for the student.

By the age of 16, students with special education services must have   an additional transition plan that addresses current functioning based   on observations, student surveys, and other age appropriate transition   services. Goals must be developed for further education and training   as well as employment after high school. Aligned transition activities   for each goal must be realistically developed to assist students in   achieving their goals. Teams must also consider the need for goals   associated with independent living. These goals could address   community access and participation, adult living and post-school   options, as well as daily living skills to support independence in   adult settings.
