"I knew in my gut that my child shouldn't be working on coins, but I didn't know how to tell the teacher. That goal needed to be DELETED. We needed to move on to skills my child REALLY needed for his future." -Tracey, Special Needs Mom
Tracey's story of how she began to flip her child's IEP for the future started when she began to ask herself the tough questions about IEP goals.
She started to ask herself - Does my child really need this skill to live their best life?
And then she continued by asking - Do I even use this skill as an adult?
Hint: If you're ever reading an IEP goal for your child (or student) and think "I don't even know why my kid is learning this, I don't use this skill to get through my day"... It's time for the goal to go away.
Tracey emailed the teacher and had an honest conversation about what her child's IEP needed to look like if it was going to work. She had a ton of talking points to work WITH the teacher, not against, and they even skipped the stress of an IEP meeting to make it happen. Click here to learn how Tracey figured it out.
