  • Multiple Dates

  • 6 CPE Credits

Are your IEPs high-quality and appropriately challenging? Do you struggle with using data sources to develop PLAAFPs? Do your goals and objectives contain the 4 necessary elements? Are you ready to dive into developing IEPs for students with significant cognitive disabilities that are meaningful and rigorous? Then, this is the workshop for you!

In this full-day in-person training, participants will "walk" through the IEP Quality and Rigor Rubric developed by the Texas Complex Access Network (TX CAN) in partnership with the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Upon completion of this training, participants will have the opportunity to sign up for follow-up coaching around presented content with an ESC Region 13 Low Incidence Disabilities Specialist.

As the purpose of this training is to build knowledge around creating PLAAFPs, goals, and objectives that are high quality and appropriately challenging, participants are encouraged to have access to one of their students’ IEPs throughout this training for reflection purposes.

In this workshop, educators will:

  • Understand critical components of the IEP including PLAAFP, Goals/Objectives, and Progress Monitoring Methods.

  • Apply the Quality & Rigor Rubric to the IEP’s PLAAFP, Goals/Objectives, and Progress Monitoring sections.

  • Create PLAAFPs, Goals/Objectives, and Progress Monitoring Methods that are rigorous and of the highest quality.
