IEP D EVELOPMENT O VERVIEW
W HAT WE WILL COVER Overview of PLEP Statement Goal/objective writing IEP Direct/Cleartrack access Printing Reports from IEP Direct/Cleartrack
PLEP Present level of Performance and Individual Needs (4 areas) All providers can comment in all areas Progress towards goals indicated here Strengths and needs are indicated for each section Parental concerns must be indicated for each section Regression to be documented here No recommendations for services or levels of services to be indicated
FOUR COMPONENTS TO PLEPS Academic Achievement, Function Learning Performance and Characteristics Social Development Physical Management
E XAMPLE : PLEP Welcome to IEP Direct Academic Achievement, Functional Performance and Learning Characteristics Levels of knowledge and development in subject and skill area including activities of daily living, level of intellectual functioning, adaptive behavior, expected rate of progress in acquiring skills and information and learning style Basic Cognitive/Daily Living Skills: Madison is easily distracted. On average she attends to tasks for 10 minutes in a one on one activity lead by an adult. When she is in full control of an activity her attention to task is longer (30 min). Madison continues to have difficulty following the routines of her day. Specifically, her ability to sequence and perform the steps in her morning routine is challenging. Madison requires frequent verbal and physical cues to remain on task. She continues to refuse to wear certain clothing items and resists having her hair brushed. She has demonstrated gains in her ability to tolerate and perform these tasks when a picture schedule is used. Speech/Language: Any Volunteers? Student Strengths, Preferences, Interests Cognitive skills and pre-academic skills are average Gains made in daily living activities since implementation of strategies Responds well to hands on activities Enjoys books Academic, developmental and functional needs of the student, including consideration of student needs that are of concern to the parent Madison needs to: Improve attention to task Develop ability to follow simple routines Participate in grooming and hygiene tasks Improve intelligibility Madison’s family is concerned with her ability to follow the morning routine and how this is impacting the family and her transition to school in the AM
A NNUAL G OALS /O BJECTIVES OR B ENCHMARKS Only 3 to 8 goals (not discipline specific) Benchmarks or objectives can be used 3-4 objectives/benchmarks per goal Only do custom goals – do not use goals from the goal bank (these are only intended to be used as a place to start – not as a complete goal/objective) All providers are responsible for monitoring progress towards all goals Goal should be mastered in one year
A NNUAL G OAL Annual goal- do what, to what extent, under what conditions Evaluative Criteria – How well and over what period Evaluative Procedures- methods used to collect data Evaluative schedule-How often methods will be used to collect or review data
O BJECTIVES OR B ENCHMARKS Objective – task analysis, identify sub skills that support achievement of annual goal, may be specific to a related service Benchmark – incremental steps of the same skill identified on the annual goal; may include decreasing levels of support, time line for progress
E XAMPLE : G OAL AND B ENCHMARKS Goal : Joe will express wants and needs to teacher-stated question using 2 to 3 word responses, with one verbal prompt, across home and school settings. Criteria: 2/3 trials/day Procedure : charting Schedule : every two weeks Benchmarks : By November Joe will express wants and needs using 1-2 word responses with two verbal prompts By March Joe will express wants and needs using 1-2 word responses with one verbal prompt By June goal will be mastered
E XAMPLE : G OAL AND O BJECTIVES Goal : Given less than two verbal prompts, Ava will stay on task and complete a variety of fine motor tasks (cutting, writing, drawing, puzzles, etc.) in 3 out of 5 trials. Criteria: daily over 2 weeks Procedure : structured observation, checklist Schedule : every other month Objectives : During craft time Ava will stay on task for at least 7 minutes with fewer than 3 verbal prompts. Using an age appropriate grasp on a pencil Ava will draw basic shapes (square, triangle) and form letters in her name given a visual model. Given a piece puzzle Ava will place pieces in proper place.
Q UESTIONS Can children be seen on Saturdays? Yes if it is a make-up session Make up sessions can be performed back to back with a regularly scheduled session (60 minute visit – 1 scheduled 1 make-up) Regression – This should be documented on daily notes, quarterly updates (comments section on goals), PLEPS for annual review. We will also do a separate regression statement (form on BB website) If children have already had an annual review meeting a regression statement (on BB form) and an amendment request (also on BB form) need to be completed and submitted (no later than April 27 th ). Do not evaluate a child (using assessment tools) or report test scores on any documentation. You will need to have parent permission to re-evaluate a child. Try to complete make-up sessions within the month. If you need to go over this one month period call a supervisor to discuss. We will work with districts to input goals into IEP direct/Cleartrack if they are not there (moving forward these should be there more often as evaluating agencies will be beginning to do this more). Erie County will be mandating that all preschool providers attend one training related to IEP development each year. This year they are targeting goal writing. See web site for training dates. Coordination of preschool services – There is a handout that outlines responsibilities
