Aligning IEPs to Academic Standards

With increased emphasis on students meeting state academic standards, instructors of students with moderate and severe disabilities have wondered about their role. Will they continue to integrate their students in the regular classrooms and in the general curriculum? Or will their participation in alternate assessments aligned to alternate achievement standards leave them stranded in self-contained classrooms once again?

According to authors Ginevra Courtade-Little and Diane Browder, the answer lies in aligning studentsí IEPs to state standards consistent with studentsí grade and ability levels. By following this book, your students with significant disabilities can participate in parallel activities directly related to the general curriculum. For example, when meeting a math state standard in measurement, have the student match coins to a linear jig to purchase an item.

Itís really quite simple: You write IEP goals on standard-based content areas that are appropriate for a studentís grade level and ability. This valuable and unique book does just that: Shows you how to construct student IEPs with goals aligned to each stateís academic content standards for each studentís assigned grade and ability level.
