Where do you want your child to be one year from now? What are your family's dreams and goals? What's important for your child to learn or to do, from the perspectives of the child, the parents, and the family?

Goals should not be written on the basis of what grade the child is in, what school the child is in, or any other factor. Goals should be individualized to the child and should have a strong correlation to the needs stated. Goals should be written in plain English, easily understandable to anyone who reads them. Remember that goals should be activities the child can accomplish. They should not be isolated behaviors or skills. Reference the "Writing Goals" information on the next page. Goals also need to address all five areas listed on page 1.


  •   Benjamin will move around his homeroom, go to and from art, music, PE, lunch, and recess in his wheelchair daily, without assistance from an adult.
  •   Dylan will use picture-symbols to make choices: about his lunch selection, his free-choice activities in class, and about what games to play at recess.
  •   Emily will read an "Easy Reader" book of her choice and describe what the book is about after reading it.
  •   Matt will tell his friends and teachers when he's angry, upset, or needs help, with words instead of gestures.
  •   Nicole will perform 4th grade science experiments with help from her peers.

List goals for (child's name). Start each strength with the child's name!
