It’s a tricky arena trying to get or provide the best education you can for your child when you can’t afford private schools and you have to rely on the public school system resources.
Very Insightful Method of Looking at an IEP
on February 17, 2013
I’m very glad to have read this book, it explores a very insightful way of looking at the IEP. the thing is, although the process described in this book is wonderful, it is not the process utilized by my child’s school. it makes sense that the goals and benchmarks should address a specific need for a specific child, but when schools routinely use “word banks” to fill in an IEP, you’re losing the option for individualization. but, after reading this, i was able to go into our next IEP session better prepared for the meeting. i knew i should be stressing that my child be college ready at graduation, so goals that weren’t centered around attaining that were useless to me.

Love it! Not only did it arrive in a timely manner, it is new I have just starting reading it and it seems very helpful already. A great buy for those just learning to write IEPs or for those who have been and need a refresher.

This book was an easy read. The information is easy to follow, free of jargon and science-speak. I believe it would be easier for me to produce quality objectives, after reading this book.

This book was very useful in helping me prepare for our next IEP by teaching me how to write realistic, appropriate and measurable goals. The book is great for beginners and talks you through the writing process step by step. It taught me how to observe my child to determine her present level of performance so that the goals I chose were ones that would move her forward this year.
This book gave me that much needed GOT IT moment!

My daughter has had an IEP for over two years, and I have never ever understood goals and especially progress reports. this book helped not only to understand them, but also helped me realize WHY I couldn’t understand them – the tricks that school districts play to spin progress reports and goals! It was obviously written for both educators and parents, but much of it seemed like a tutorial for educators on how NOT to write goals to get yourself in trouble. I knew there was plenty wrong with my daughter’s IEP and I could not make heads or tails of her progress reports. After reading this book I realized that her school district was doing everything this book said not to do. It seems that these little dirty tricks the schools play with goals are too tempting for them to avoid, but if a crafty parent or an education attorney gets hold of them, they can get in a heap of legal trouble, and schools play that game of chance because maybe only one in twenty or thirty or whatever of parents will question the goals. the other twenty or thirty kids, the school districts saves tons of money on getting away with not providing services. OK, more of a rant, than a review, but this book was the thing that helped me understand WHY the goals on my daughter’s IEP as well as her progress reports didn’t make sense! It’s a fast read and easy to understand, written by two professionals in the field who really know their stuff and know how to put it into plain language.
