Now my son has been attending his IEP’s for a couple of years now but I have to say that this article has got me thinking maybe he should have started earlier than that. In fact, one study shows that you can begin to have the kids write their own goals, with adult assistance, as early as the age of six.
Now my son probably wasn’t ready for that but I can definitely see where he could have been involved say around middle school. The article is entitled “Collaborating with Students: Invite Them to the IEP Process” by Pamela Hill at MultiBriefs:Exclusive. It’s definitely food for thought.
