Independent Living Goals What are your strategies or guidelines for determining if an independent living goal is needed?
Things to Think About 1. Are the student's goals for independent living the same as non- disabled peers? 2. Does the student require more intervention than a non-disabled peer would to prepare for those independent living goals? If yes, a measurable postsecondary goal is necessary, along with transition services in this area. If no, a measurable postsecondary goal for independent living is not necessary. It is the IEP team’s decision to include a measurable postsecondary goal for independent living.
