IEP Goal Bank

A well written IEP goal is essential to the IEP and special education. How can you monitor progress if you don’t know what you are aiming at? This is another post being done by popular request. So often I get asked, “Can you put together an IEP goal bank?” The number of possible IEP goals is infinite. The list could go on forever.

IEP Goals and Objectives

I discussed this on a podcast episode so that parents could understand all the moving parts of the IEP.

IEP Goals

What you will find here are many lists of IEP goals. For the most part, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. However, IEP goals should be specific to the child’s needs. And, they should be developed from baselines that are listed in the IEP present levels.

So, while browsing lists of IEP goals is easy, and you likely will find a goal that you like, it doesn’t mean that it’s appropriate for your child. I have many posts that are just about IEP goals. You may need to do some reading there first, before you choose the measurable IEP goals from this goal bank list.

IEP Goals for Autism

I’m often asked why I don’t have a separate IEP goal bank for autism. Or autism specific IEP goals. Remember, IEPs are needs-driven, not diagnosis driven. So, you’d develop goals based on the child’s needs. Yes, many students with IEP for autism have similar needs.

Most of these IEP goals are in PDF format so that you can print them. I downloaded and uploaded them to this site because so many of the links had previously gone bad, and I don’t want them to disappear. Please let me know if you get 404 errors from any of them and I will hunt them down again.

Printable IEP Goal Bank

Probably the most popular resource on the internet is the IEP goal bank from the Redmond School District. I wish I knew who to credit this to! If you look around, you’ll see it’s the same IEP goal bank shared all over the place. All 177 pages of it! While I don’t take credit for it, I periodically go through about a dozen pages at a time and recheck the ideas for grammar, clarity, technology changes, ableism, etc. So my version likely varies a little bit from what you’ve see online.
