IEPs are a school system’s way of quantifying your child’s hurdles to education, and how it plans to address them. It can be tricky sometimes to select and describe goals that help educators understand your child’s difficulty, and which help the child make measurable progress. Many parents and educators have walked this path before, so we recommend you visit these sites when writing goals for the next IEP.
