I don't really remember much else, but I would like to share a few of this years IEP goals with you:
Hope will reduce in class avoidance behaviors, such as unnecessary pencil sharpening, daydreaming, doodling, walking around, from 15 to 5 times a day.
Hope will reduce lying behaviors from 6 to 1 times per day.
Hope will reduce stealing behaviors from 5 to 1 times a day.
I have never seen IEP goals like these before. Academically, she is still reading on a kindergarten level. Her math skill are slightly higher.
In thirty years of fostering and adopting ED teenagers, I have never seen an IEP that resembles this one.
At the end of the meeting, Mrs. Director of Special Education suggested that we meet again in September to update "Miss Sticky Fingers IEP". Her words, not mine.
