By Kristin Stanberry

As you and the IEP team develop your child’s annual IEP goals, there are several things to consider. Check each goal to make sure it has all of the following qualities.

Does the goal reflect my child’s interests, strengths and learning style?
Is the goal SMART? To be sure, ask yourself if it is...

Understanding annual IEP goals is important for your child’s success in school. It can also help you build confidence with the IEP process.
