Individualized Program Plans. Programming for Students with Special Needs, Book 3.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Special Educational Services Branch.
This volume is the third in a series (developed in response to a needs assessment survey of special educators in Alberta, Canada) providing practical suggestions about instructional strategies, classroom management, preparing individual program plans, and understanding special needs. This volume presents a process for development of Individualized Program Plans (IPPs) and offers strategies for involving parents. It provides information on writing long-term goals and short-term objectives and illustrates these with case studies and samples of completed IPPs. The book also addresses transition planning and includes a variety of forms and checklists. Section 1 considers how the school and parents determine when the modifications of the regular program required by a student with special needs are extensive enough to require an IPP. Section 2 lists the essential information required by Alberta Education in an IPP, such as the assessed level of educational performance, strengths and areas of need, and long-term goals and short-term objectives. Section 3 explains the five-step IPP process, including: (1) gathering information; (2) setting the direction; (3) developing the IPP; (4) implementing the IPP; and (5) reviewing the IPP. Section 4 presents examples of completed IPPs and Section 5 provides blank IPP forms. (Contains 13 references.) (DB)
