Présentation de l'éditeur

A truly comprehensive, teacher- and parent-friendly guide to creating clear and effective IEPs

With the skyrocketing diagnoses of ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and related conditions in U.S. schools, there is a growing need for information on creating effective IEPs for exceptional students. The IEP From A to Z is a step-by-step guide showing teachers and parents how to get the right education plan in place for students with ADHD, Autism/Asperger's, Emotional/Behavioral Disturbance, and related conditions.

  • Provides easy-to-understand explanations of the special education process along with a wealth of sample effective IEPs
  • Explains what is most important for educators and parents to keep in mind during IEP development
  • Provides content area-specific sample goal and objective templates, general teaching tips for maintaining the IEP, and useful resources

From nationally recognized experts in the special education field, this book guides readers through the process of writing thoughtful, intelligent Individualized Education Plans that deliver high-quality, need-based educational programming to exceptional students.

Quatrième de couverture

This accessibly written guide shows educators and parents how to get the right education plan in place for students with ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, emotional/behavioral disturbance, nonverbal learning disorder, and language impairment. Step–by–step, the book addresses the crucial building blocks of effective IEP development: present levels of performance; underlying conditions; methodology; criteria for performance; prompt levels; generalization; goals/objectives; and evaluation/data collection. The book offers a truly comprehensive, educator– and parent–friendly guide to creating clear, measurable, and meaningful IEPs, and:
  • Provides up–to–date, user–friendly advice for writing goals and objectives consistent with current special education law

  • Addresses often neglected areas of functioning such as social cognition, critical thinking, and executive function, as well as least restrictive environment, assessment, and accommodations

  • Includes content–area specific sample goal and objective templates, teaching strategies, and useful resources

The authors guide readers through the process of creating thoughtful, intelligent IEPs that consistently deliver high–quality, need–based educational programming to exceptional students.

"Too often, IEPs contain meaningless goals that are useless to teachers and parents. In this book, the authors provide a framework for writing goals and short–term objectives that mesh with popular progress reporting schedules. This book should be required reading for every special educator and every parent of a child with special educational needs."
from the Foreword by Peter W. D. Wright, Esq., Wrightslaw

"I get asked all the time about how to write IEP goals for this population. I finally have the resource I need."
Peg Dawson, Ed.D., author, Smart But Scattered: The Revolutionary "Executive Skills" Approach to Helping Kids Reach Their Potential

A previous version of this book, covering only autism spectrum disorders, was published as How Well Does Your IEP Measure Up?

This comprehensive, well-researched and practical guide to developing an IEP that will optimize service delivery to your child exceeded my expectations on all levels. Although useful for any parent or teacher trying to gain a better grasp of the workings of the IEP, it is especially useful for those of us dealing with autism, since the authors chose to focus on this baffling and challenging condition due to their knowledge of the subject and the many difficulties it presents to writers of IEPs. The book also discusses key legal issues associated with IEPs.

Here are some of the main areas covered in the book:

- Knowledge of ASD and the way in which it affects the student who manifests it as the most basic building block of appropriate IEP development

- A detailed, insightful discussion of each of the components of an IEP and the relationship of the components to each other

-The elements necessary to prepare an effective Present Levels of Performance (PLP), which forms the basis for generating annual goals and represents a baseline against which to judge progress

- Why it is important to specify underlying conditions clearly

- The relationship between clearly written objectives and appropriate methodology

- Discussion of a "prompt hierarchy"

- Why IEPs should specify prompt levels in the objectives as well as a system for fading the prompts back
- The need to build generalization strategies right into the objectives so the child learns a skill across a variety of settings, people and activities, right from the start

-Breaking down multi-dimensional behavior such as "crossing the street" into its basic components so that behavior progress can be measured

- How not to confuse a process with a product outcome (e.g. developing understanding vs. demonstrating understanding)

- The difference between accommodations and modifications (the latter reduce the standard and result in lowered educational outcomes)

- Guidelines for prioritizing needs and sample IEPs covering such content areas as concept development, critical thinking, making inferences, etc. The above list is only a sampling of the issues covered.

This book is written from a highly-informed, sensible and practical perspective. Having read this book, I feel like I'm in control of the IEP process and not vice-versa. Indispensable.

HASH(0x97da1df8) étoiles sur 5 A fantastic IEP resource! 27 octobre 2002

This is the best book I have seen yet relating to IEPs for children with autism. The authors focus heavily on creating measurable goals and objectives...something I have not found in other IEP books I have read. I highly recommend this book for any parent of a child with ASD who has an upcoming IEP.

HASH(0x97d8978c) étoiles sur 5 The best!! 22 juin 2003

It realy outlines step by step what an IEP should focus on and say from the first page to the goals and measures. It really was a good book to have along side knowing the laws and rights that other books focus on- it helps you understand how to truly make and IEP individual for your child (very ASD focused). Good for parents and administrators.

HASH(0x9887f234) étoiles sur 5 Essential for any parent needing to create a meaningful IEP! 26 juin 2011
Par Danette M - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a parent, I have been a believer in going into the IEP process with an advocate-someone who represents me. This is not an adversarial approach, but rather, I know that I can't learn what I need to know fast enough to get the job done right. Parent advocates do this for a living, so they are on top of all the ins and outs that we mere parents may miss.

This being said, I know that many parents are not in a position to be able to hire an advocate. Thank goodness for The IEP from A to Z: How to Create Meaningful and Measurable Goals and Objectives written by Diane Twachtman-Cullen and Jennifer Twachtman-Bassett! Now parents can arm themselves with a guide that will show them how to get the right education plan for their child.

The first part of this book aims to provide the needed information to create an IEP that will deliver effective services for your child. The authors present many pieces that make up the IEP and explain in detail, with examples, their importance. And there is much more in this section of the book.

The second part of this book provides many examples to illustrate how each component of the IEP contributes to the development of an appropriate, individualized education program. The examples are also very helpful in seeing how what we just learned in Part 1 (the theory and the law) can be put into practice to result in a well designed and effective IEP.

Many parents are at a loss as to how to formulate good goals and objectives. They will often ask other parents for samples of what they have used in their IEPs. The remainder of Part 2 focuses on goals and objectives designed to attain appropriate educational services. The last 80 pages are comprised of sample PLPs, goals, and objectives in the following areas:

cognitive and social-cognitive functioning,
communication, language and speech,
nonverbal comprehension and expression,
social relatedness and interaction, play, and leisure skills,
executive function,
theory of mind, and
critical thinking.

These samples alone are worth the price of the book!

This book is essential for any parent of a child with ASD, nonverbal learning disability, ADD/ADHD, emotional disturbance and behavioral difficulty, or language difficulties who will be required to help create a meaningful IEP for their child. There is something for everyone, novice and experienced parents alike.

I purchased this book for use in training special education staff members of our region. I found it answered many questions concerning the development of appropriate and measurable goals and objectives. It details the "why". The examples presented in chapters 11-14 are excellent! I have suggested this book to my colleagues for use in their IEP development trainings. A fantastic reference/resource not only for the new special educator, but, also, for the seasoned teacher.
