Your child’s IEP goals are very important to us. We understand that during this time you may have difficulty targeting specific things your child needs to work on. As we know, IEP goals are catered and very specific for each student. Students may have goals in one area, or several areas, including academics or behavior. The following are some example areas of need that may be on your child’s IEP:
•Reading Comprehension: ability to understand what is being read and recall information from the text 
•Reading Fluency: ability to ready with accuracy, expression and at an appropriate pace. 
•Reading Phonics: ability to decode and blend unfamiliar words in order to read them 
•Math Calculation: ability to use strategies to solve math problems with a variety of operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) 
•Math Reasoning: ability to understand math word problems in order to determine how to solve them correctly 
•Written Expression: ability to construct a sentence using the proper mechanics of writing (punctuation, capitalization, spacing) 
•Work Habits: these goals are specific for each student but may pertain with staying focused/attending to their work, organization, etc. 
•Social Skills: these goals are specific for each student but may pertain with controlling anxiety, interacting with peers/adults, etc. 
If you are having trouble with your child’s IEP goals or would like strategies that may help, please do not hesitate to contact us.
