School-Based Practices: Integrating Goals, Employing Data,
Planning Transitions and Advocating

April 13-14, 2018

This two day continuing education seminar will focus on practical aspects of developing student-centered IEP goals that incorporate the expertise of parents, student, teachers and related service providers. Data-based practice provides best practices and practical strategies for data collection and management. Educational transitions will assist participants to plan and manage smooth transitions. We will discuss and develop an advocacy agenda, explore available tools, identify lynchpins for change and how to provide information effectively.


  • Identify and list educationally relevant goal areas and identify which International Classification of Function (ICF) level is targeted
  • List characteristics of student-focused, integrated goal development
  • Identify reasonable data points to benchmark and indicate student progress
