Date: Conducted September 24, 2008

Approaches to IEP writing and monitoring progress have evolved over the years. Some of these changes have caused concern among advocates and families, in particular the option to eliminate the use of objectives and/or benchmarks for many students. However, the intended outcome of these changes is to provide greater accountability for student progress, not less. With a deeper understanding of these changes, parents can become active partners in monitoring their child’s progress toward meeting goals. This session provides the rationale behind these changes, the components of a well written measurable goal and how to ensure the IEP contains a description of how progress toward meeting goals will be measured.
