Supporting students’ meaningful participation in school activities and routines (whether in-person or remote) is aligned with federal legislation and state, local, and professional guidelines. However, assessing participation and developing student goals that intentionally focus on student participation are not universally utilized in school-based practice. This three-session course will present findings from research regarding development and use of student goals.
Topics addressed will include:
1) Assessing and measuring student participation in school whether in-person, remote or hybrid
2) Developing and using student goals that address participation in school
3) Promoting school cultures that encourage effective teaming and a focus on student participation
4) Meaningfully including parents and students in IEP development
5) Prioritizing student needs and goals
6) Developing and assessing goals for students receiving online and hybrid schooling
7) Applying information to school-based therapist performance reviews
Participants will receive a GOALS for Student Participation tool. Participants will engage in large and small group discussions regarding their relevant professional experiences, their reactions to recent research findings, and their clinical decision making as applied to provided case scenarios. Participants will also explore strategies to implement change within their school-based practice.
Following this course, participants will:
- Select and use tools to assess and measure student participation in school whether in-person, online or hybrid.
- Discuss barriers to development of student goals that address participation within the context of school activities or routines.
- Generate strategies for development of student goals that address participation within the context of school activities or routines.
- Devise strategies to promote effective teaming and meaningful involvement of parents and students during IEP development.
- Prioritize student needs and develop participation-based goals.
- Analyze how the move to online and hybrid schooling impacts goal development and assessment.
