Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn to write effective present level statements that will guide goal development.
  2. learn to implement a failsafe formula when developing goals and objectives.
  3. learn to make effective measurement choices for goals and objectives.


Writing IEP goals and objectives that are meaningful and measurable can be a daunting task. In this session, participants will learn a failsafe formula that will streamline goal and objective development while maintaining the individualization that is necessary in IEPs. Learn to work smarter, not harder, when developing goals for social–emotional and behavioral skills.
