You did the assessments. You have the data. But how do you decide if the lagging skills should be a goal area, an accommodation, or a modification?
Let me tell you!
Here's how I decide if a lagging skill should be a goal area, an accommodation, or a modification!
I start by asking...
What areas of the curriculum are impacted by the student's disability?
Then, I go through each item on my list and ask...
Can we put an accommodation or modification in place to remove this hurdle to the curriculum?
Is this a hurdle that requires Specially Designed Instruction?
Now, review your list and...
1-Add accommodations to the IEP
-be specific & choose appropriate accommodations for the student's disability
2-Hurdles that need Specially Designed Instruction are your goal areas!
Hurdles: Fluency, Comprehension
By the end of the IEP period, STUDENT will achieve a benchmark score of 16 (or higher) of the DIBELS' subtest MAZE.
STUDENT will a score of 96 (or higher) on 3 consecutive administrations of the DIBELS' Oral Reading Fluency - Accuracy.
