I. SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS THE IEP TEAM MUST CONSIDER BEFORE DEVELOPING THE IEP. ANY FACTORS CHECKED AS YES MUST BE ADDRESSED IN THE IEP.
Is the student blind or visually impaired?YesThe IEP must include a description of the instruction in Braille and the use of Braille unless the IEP team determines, after an evaluation of the students reading and writing skills, needs, and appropriate reading and writing media (including an evaluation of the students future needs for instruction in Braille or the use of Braille), that instruction in Braille or the use of Braille is not appropriate for the student.
Is the student deaf or hard of hearing?
YesThe IEP must include a communication plan to address the following: language and communication needs; opportunities for direct communications with peers and professional personnel in the students language and communication mode; academic level; full range of needs, including opportunities for direct instruction in the students language and communication mode; and assistive technology devices and services. Indicate in which section of the IEP these considerations are addressed. The Communication Plan must be completed and is available at www.pattan.net
Does the student have communication needs?
YesStudent needs must be addressed in the IEP (i.e., present levels, specially designed instruction (SDI), annual goals, etc.)
Does the student need assistive technology devices and/or services?
YesStudent needs must be addressed in the IEP (i.e., present levels, specially designed instruction, annual goals, etc.)
Does the student have limited English proficiency?
YesThe IEP team must address the students language needs and how those needs relate to the IEP.
Does the student exhibit behaviors that impede his/her learning or that of others?YesThe IEP team must develop a Positive Behavior Support Plan that is based on a functional assessment of behavior and that utilizes positive behavior techniques. Results of the functional assessment of behavior may be listed in the Present Levels section of the IEP with a clear measurable plan to address the behavior in the Goals and Specially Designed Instruction sections of the IEP or in the Positive Behavior Support Plan if this is a separate document that is attached to the IEP. A Positive Behavior Support Plan and a Functional Behavioral Assessment form are available at www.pattan.net
II. PRESENT LEVELS OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND FUNCTIONAL PERFORMANCE
Include the following information related to the student:
Present levels of academic achievement (e.g., most recent evaluation of the student, results of formative assessments, curriculum-based assessments, transition assessments, progress toward current goals)
Present levels of functional performance (e.g., results from a functional behavioral assessment, results of ecological assessments, progress toward current goals)
Present levels related to current postsecondary transition goals if the students age is 14 or younger if determined appropriate by the IEP team (e.g., results of formative assessments, curriculum-based assessments, progress toward current goals)
Parental concerns for enhancing the education of the student
How the students disability affects involvement and progress in the general education curriculum
Academic, developmental, and functional needs related to students disabilityPresent levels of Academic Achievement: Jacob was assessed March 10, 2009 using Diagnostic Reading Assessment (DRA) and scored a nonfiction level 24. A level 24 is equivalent to a second grade level. This is up from a level 16 which was scored in January. This shows an increase from middle of first grade to the middle of second grade reading levels.
Jacob has just begun to use reading strategies to decode uncommon words. He is strongest in using the beginning sound and using it in conjunction with picture clues to decode the word. He has improved in decoding words, but is weakest at isolation of sounds and blending sounds together to form a word. This is consistent with the results of his WIATT II Word Reading scores. Jacob scored an 82 on this sub-test which indicates his is below average in comparison to his same age peers. This was also consistent with his Pseudo-word decoding score of 81. It demonstrates that Jacobs phonetic knowledge to sound out nonsense or unfamiliar words. This score is also below average in comparison to his same age peers. Jacob struggles with visual perception tasks in math such as: analyzing data and plotting them on a bar graph. He also has struggles with concepts such as: adding money and counting change. He has difficulty comprehending that even though a nickel is larger than a dime it is worth less monetarily.He scored an 81 on the numerical section of the WIATT-II. This score indicates that he is able to complete most basic addition and subtraction problems, but struggled when the problems moved into multi-digit or more abstract tasks. Jacobs working memory score on the WIATT-II was 68 and was placed in the extremely low range. Jacob was administered the Arithmetic subtest. The score indicates that Jacobs abilities in this area are significantly below those of his same age peers and he will likely have difficulty with tasks that require him to retain and retrieve information, particularly auditory information.
Jacob requires extended time to complete tasks during class. He has difficulty in retrieving information that has been retained from prior lesson or skill. If Jacob is rushed or does not understand the questions asked he will become frustrated and unable to answer any of the questions. Often times Jacob becomes frustrated because his pencil breaks during activities. Pencil pressure and control are difficult for him.Present levels of functional performance:
Jacob participates in class and interacts well with his classmates. He fits in socially with his peers and has many friends.
Jacob often has difficulty remaining in his seat during instruction and at times he becomes off-task during lesson introduction, he requires prompting to regain his focus and attention on the lesson. He works well independently, if he is confident that he knows and understands the requirements of the lesson or independent work. He often requires one on one reassurance and assistance from the teacher on independent seatwork. Parental Concerns for enhancing the education of the student:
Mrs. Johnson expressed a concern about Jacobs organizational skills. She reports that it requires Jacob several attempts to begin a homework assi
