the obtainment of endorsements. The Office of Early Childhood will be responsible for any other components of certification. Once the changes go into effect, SLPs will not be allowed to be the primary teacher of a preschool class without the 122 certification. 19 Preschool Certification Requirements The 122 certification will be required for:

An SLP who serves as the primary teacher in a special education classroom The 122 certification will NOT be required for: An SLP who only tests preschool children An SLP who serves as the primary or related service provider in an individual, small group or inclusion setting

20 Preschool Certification Requirements Questions about this process should be addressed to: Joyce Greer Early Childhood Instructional Specialist [email protected]

25 PLAAFP Summary (Baseline Data) Includes: 1. Identified areas of need to be addressed on the IEP (check the appropriate area that identifies this goal) 2. Data source 3. A baseline statement (starting point) of the students current function in relation to the annual goal

26 PLAAFP Summary Baseline for the Annual Goal The baseline statement should include: a) data source, b) a clear description of the observable target skill or behavior, c) the condition under which the target skill can be observed, and

d) the current rate of performance. 27 Determining the Baseline 1. Based on the PLAAFP, determine critical, prioritized areas of need that can be reasonably addressed during the school year. These areas will become annual goals. 2. Once these areas are identified, determine the baseline directly related to the annual goal.

3. Use scaffolding documents to unpack Standards and determine which skills are embedded in the Standards. 4. The baseline provides the starting point for progress monitoring. 28 Example Baseline Statements When presented with 10 pictures of initial consonant S words, Alex can produce the S sound in the initial position of words with 30% accuracy spontaneously.

According to the LAP-3, Alex can identify rough or smooth surfaces by touch with 50% accuracy. 29 Measurable Annual Goals Measurable annual goals are academic and/or functional goals that are written to meet the childs needs that result from the childs disability to enable the child to be involved in and progress in the general education curriculum and meet each of the childs other educational

needs that result from the childs disability (C.F.R. 300.320(a)(2)). They must be meaningful, understandable, and able to be accomplished within one school year. If multiple areas of need are identified in the PLAAFP, prioritize goals based on critical needs that have the greatest impact on progress. 30 Measurable Annual Goals

Should address functional and/or behavioral needs addressed in a students PLAAFP. Should focus on deficit skill areas. Should identify the knowledge, skills, and/or behaviors a student is expected to demonstrate within a specified time period. Should be written in easily understood language. Should state an observable behavior of the student (can be seen and/or heard by the observer). 31

Measurable Annual Goals The IEP Committee should determine overall progress from informal and formal assessment data. Progress can be measured as written without additional information The goal identifies how to measure progress and determine mastery. Measurement of progress yields the same outcome by several people.

Avoid vague, unobservable terms, such as appropriate, improve, increase/decrease, participate, that do not target a specific skill or behavior 32 Measurable Annual Goals and Objectives 33 Components of Measurable Annual Goals

Condition: Situation, setting, or given material under which behavior will be performed (what is provided to the student) Behavior: Specific action student will be expected to perform (what the student does) Criteria: Level of mastery student must demonstrate and/or number of times student must demonstrate the skill or behavior Timeframe: Start and end date for each goal. 34

Measurable Annual Goals Timeframe Condition Behavior Criteria

By the end of the 2019-2020 school year when given a 5th grade reading passage, Alex will read 115 words correctly in one

minute by applying grade-level phonics and word analysis skills on 4 out of 5 assessments. (RL.7.10) By the end of the year, read and comprehend literature,

including stories, dramas, and poems, in the grades 6-8 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range. (RL.7.10) 35 Measurable Annual Goals Timeframe Condition

Behavior Criteria In 36 weeks, when given a verbal model, Jaylin will increase his

intelligibility by producing s blends at the beginning of words in sentences with at least 70% accuracy on 3 consecutive attempts. (SL.2.1)

Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about grade 2 topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups. (SL.2.1) 36 Addressing Specific Goals What are the students communicative strengths? What are the students communicative weaknesses? What are the skills contributing to the strengths?

What skills are deficient and therefore contributing to the weaknesses? 37 Addressing Specific Goals Which of the students skills can be used to compensate for deficiencies? What do I want to work on first? And now answer: Why do you want to work on that first? That answer will help you determine

if you have made a viable choice. What are the tasks you will have the student complete or engage in to work on the skill? What supports will you provide for the student? 38 Writing Specific Goals The student will increase vocabulary usage through literacy to 80% accuracy, on 2/3 trials, when given verbal, visual, and auditory cues.

The student, when given 10 pictures related to a story, will name the pictures with 80% accuracy, when given visual, auditory, and verbal cues, on 2/3 trials. 39 Using Data to Develop Goals - STAR 40

Using Data to Develop Goals - STAR 41 Example Goal By the end of 36 weeks, when verbally presented with a CVC word, the student will identify the initial, medial, and final phoneme sound, with 80% accuracy, when given tactile, visual, and verbal cues,

2/3 trials. RF.1.2c 42 Using Data to Develop Goals - STAR 43 Using Data to Develop Goals - STAR

44 Example Goal By the end of the 2019-2020 school year, the student will produce the s sound in initial, medial, and final position of words in sentences with 80% accuracy, when given picture presentation, verbal, auditory, and tactile cues, 2 consecutive sessions. SL.K.6 45

Using Data to Develop Goals - iReady 46 Using Data to Develop Goals - iReady 47 Using Data to Develop Goals - iReady

48 Goals The iReady results give so much information, you can use it to write multiple goals. To link to the Standards, define the deficit skill then choose a Standard that addresses that skill, for reference only. The chosen Standard must be from the students assigned grade level.

49 Example Goal When given a third grade level text, the student will sequence the events of the story with 70% accuracy on 3 consecutive attempts. 50
