Every step and piece of an IEP or IEP meeting is critical to the child, its learning, and the parents. I believe the IEP meeting is also very beneficial to the parents because if this is the first-born child with disabilities, then this meeting could enlighten the parents on things that would come off as confusing or
The following is a two-part project designed to help me understand the IEP Goal development process. It includes an interview with a current special education teacher and her role in the IEP goal development process. The second part is an analysis of case study. It requires writing IEP goals for it using the Common Core Standards, developing an PBS for the student and creating an accommodation analysis based on the students needs in the case study. When completed, I should have a better feel for the IEP process for students physical disabilities and health
They will often make good grades but they will not engage deeply into the subject/lesson like a intrinsic learner. They typically will only learn what they need to know to pass an exam. I feel like the students that have Individual Education Plans (IEPs) fall under the Extrinsic motivators. When writing IEPs in the future I will use the idea from Ann in the book, Activating the Desire to Learn, she said she would ask students what are their college plans? Which is something we do on IEPs, for the Transition Component, I too always ask, for college plans.
In all IEPs there need to be goals set of for the student to work towards, which will help them meet the standards of the general curriculum, and aid in them improving upon their disability and hopefully reaching independence eventually. UDL is supposed to help the IEP team put together goals for the student to meet, specifically goals that are related to problem areas of the student, and that give the student a chance to learn what they need just like other students. This section in the IEP is very important because it lists out specific goals with great detail that Stacy must work on, including how she is supposed to meet these goals, how she will be evaluated for the goals, and what exactly has to be done in order for her to have completed the goal. These goals will really benefit Stacy because she will improve in the areas these goals are focusing on, and she will be able to keep up with the general curriculum in her own way without falling behind or struggling because of her learning
Then how can they do their work by themselves?” Well, if the student has a disability, then it is the teacher’s responsibility to give the student work that is right for them. Then, it is the student’s job to do the work that is being asked. Have you ever heard of an IEP education? Well, if the teacher does a bad job teaching, then it is the student’s responsibility to go to study with another teacher. Or even better, get a tutor!
Inclusive education can teach the normal students to become more sensitive and empathetic towards those who are different from them. They also will learn tolerance and develop some social skills such as leadership, interpersonal as well as communication skills. According to Salend (2011), inclusion assists the students with no disabilities to realize individual differences and needs, as well as start to understand and accept disability in real life. Thus, children of all ages, regardless of their differences should learn and being raised in an environment that represents the real environment that they will ultimately work in (Etscheld, 2004). Other than that, inclusive classroom will familiarize the students with no disabilities with their peers who have disabilities which in turn will help them to eliminate the fear and uneasiness that they often experience whenever they stay close to their disabled peers.
The differences in digital knowledge and skills is the differences in the ability to access to ICT facilities between locations and mastery of ICT skills among students and teachers (PIPP 2006-2010). Typically, digital dknowledge and skills issues involved aspects such as the ability to use the facilities and technology, the availability of digital technologies such as information and communication technology (ICT) as well as the high cost of using these technologies (Van Dijk, 2000). These aspects have implications on the level of ICT literacy among pupils in turn making it difficult for teachers to implement the PdP involving ICT. The use of ICT in schools transform teaching and learning methods (Kaffash et al., 2010). Students especially at the secondary school level are encouraged to use computers, Internet and e-mail for homework, sourcing information on the website for complete projects and assignments.
A student with a specific learning disability may be given an individual education plan also known as an IEP. Those plans must be followed by the teacher to create a learning environment which is best suited to the student’s particular learning style. If a student is having difficulty in the classroom a referral may be made by the teacher, the guidance counselor, school administration or the child’s parents to a school psychologist. School psychologist will evaluate the student and make a determination using a Comprehensive Evaluation Report. The Comprehensive Evaluation Report or CER is written by the school psychologist with the assistance of the general education teacher, parents, and the special education teacher.
The government though that integrated education can improve overall educational effectiveness and cost effectiveness. It can address the diversity of society and the basic needs for general schools (Norwich, 1996). The objective is to develop the potentials of every student (Education Bureau, 2014). Different scholars support the scaffolding theory and the zone of proximal development that children's learning is like building structures. If students who need some special educational needs, it can provide sufficient support and helps so that it can stimulate a person's largest potential (Wood, Bruner & Ross, 1976).
