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, sort of. Soooo often, I get asked, “Can you put together an IEP goal bank?” The thought of doing so is just overwhelming. The number of possible IEP goals is infinite….the list could go on forever. I thought it would just be easier to do an overview of SMART goals and then provide some IEP goal banks. No sense in reinventing the wheel! Honestly the 500 SDIs post took me hours and hours to do. I can’t imagine doing anything similar and having a list of 500 IEP goals. I mean think about it-time management goals, social skills goals, self advocacy goals….that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
I have done a few posts that are a list of goals, specifically for Executive Functioning and self-advocacy/self determination. You may want to check those out. Plus the 500 SDIs one, which is always popular and remains our #1 most read post on the blog.
- 30 measurable goals that address Executive Function deficits
- 35 goals to address self advocacy or self determination
- 500 SDIs and accommodations for an IEP
Remember, goal writing is easy when you use SMART thinking.
If the sentence or goal matches these 5 concepts, it should be a good goal for your child, so then you can focus on the right SDIs to get them there.
