The ChoiceMaker Self-Determination Curriculum is designed to teach students with disabilities the self-determination skills they need to be successful in adult life. It consists of three strands: Choosing Goals, Expressing Goals, and Taking Action. Each strand addresses teaching objectives in four transition areas: education, employment, personal, and daily living, housing and community participation. This lesson package is focused on the Expressing Goals strand, which teaches students how to manage their own Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings. It includes two videos, a Teachers' Manual, and a Student Workbook. The first videotape, entitled "Self-Directed IEP in Action," is 7-minutes long and introduces the Self-Directed IEP process to students, parents, teachers, and administrators. It shows students with disabilities in classes working on the lessons and describing their experiences in using steps in the self-determination process. The second videotape, entitled "Self-Directed IEP," is 17-minutes long and introduces the 11 steps to leading an IEP meeting. After watching the videotape, students complete the 11 lessons in the Student Workbook that match the steps explained in the video. In these lessons, students learn to apply the steps to their own lives. The kit also includes a ChoiceMaker Self-Determination Assessment. (Contains 25 references.) (CR)
