From Gobbledygook to Clearly Written Annual IEP Goals
Writing IEP goals is easier once the steps are revealed by Dr. Barbara Bateman in her latest book
Writing clear, measurable annual IEP goals is a difficult skill to master. The good news is that goal writing is easy once the steps are revealed.
No one is born knowing how to drive a car or send an email. Some skills simply have to be learned. There is no better example than the writing of clear, measurable annual IEP goals; a truly difficult skill to master. The good news is that goal writing isn’t hard once the mystery is taken away and the steps revealed.
The purpose of this plain-speaking guide is to do just that—show you how to move from foggy, “gobbledygook” goals to clean, objective and effective annual goals consistent with new IDEA dictates. Dr. Barbara Bateman takes actual goals, which were poorly written, and turns them into productive goals that will help you guide students to success.
