IEP Goals and Objectives: How Are They Developed?

12:00 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m., CT

November 29, 2017

What do quality IEP goals and objectives look like? How are they developed? How can I, as a parent, be ready to help develop them for my child?

The development and implementation of IEP goals and objectives for a student can be a daunting task. This webinar is intended to make that task easier. We will provide practical information as well as information of best practices. We will review the requirements of the law and provide examples of what are, and are not, quality IEP goals and objectives.
