2013 IEP

I cannot believe its been a year since we did the last IEP.  Completely different support staff in the room this year from the school district, but I think the goals might be more realistic (he ended up not meeting any of his goals last year, for various reasons).

Here are this years goals - and we had some really nice dialogue with his various support staff.  This is the first year in 3 that we have not had Alpine there to advocate with us, and we got a nice compliment from his current classroom teacher that we were among the most involved / advocating parents she'd seen. 

1.   Communication and Basic Language Skills:
During 15 minutes of interactive play with peers, Dominic will participate in at least 3 conversational turns of more than 3 exchanges over 3 consecutive chartings.
(this would be recess/pe)

2.   Reading for All Purposes
Given a simple 4-5 word written directive, written with instructional level words, Dominic will demonstrate comprehension of directive by completing the task noted with 80% accuracy over 3 consecutive trials.
(we are going to label everything in the house at his eye level to assist from home)

3. Number sense, properties, and operations
Given a written numberal / symbol from 1-10, Dominic will provide the corresponding number of an item / manipulative with 80% accuracy over 3 consecutive trials
(we are going to work on counting EVERYTHING)

4.  Writing and Composition
Dominic will write his first and last name independently, without a visual model or tracing demonstarating proper letter formatoin, spacing, and staing on the lines of standard grade level paper with 80% accuracy on 3/4 data collection days
(This is going to be a challenge for him - she's going to have him writing his name on every single worksheet that the rest of the class gets, starting tomorrow - and while he probably wont' be doing the worksheet for its intended purpose, he will work on labelling whats on there)

So some interesting changes, which will need lots of steps to accomplish each one.  We will let them bake in for a few months, and then we will sit down and look at progress pretty hard, probably in early April.

We also talked about changing how they track his verbals, and only counting sentences of 3 words or more.  Which is a big change, but we're going to give it a shot.
