All IEPs must contain measurable annual goals that focus on remediation of academic or functional problems, allow a student to be involved in and make progress in the general education curriculum, and are based on the student's PLAAFP statements.
The IEP content must include the PLAAFP statement, the measurable annual goals, the methods by which teachers will measure a student's progress toward his or her goals, and the special education services that will be provided to a student.
For instance, within IDEA, school teams are to focus on PLAAFP
using evidence-based practices that provide accessible and high-quality learning environments that support meaningful educational benefit (Yell, 2006).
In describing the general academic curriculum, the PLAAFP should indicate which specific subject areas, such as English Language Arts, Mathematics, or Social Studies, are affected by your child's disability.
While subjective methods, such as teacher observations can be important, the PLAAFP should not rely on them exclusively
