Question IEP goals

I need some help regarding my son's IEP. He has several modifications listed (which are rarely implemented, but that's another story). They only have 1 goal listed - that he pass the state skills test in all subjects. It occurs to me that this is a bit narrow but I don't know what other goals to write.

What goals do you have listed for your children?

Thanks, in advance, for all help!!!

Re: IEP goals

Depends on what your child needs to work on

Add some short term goals. Like, have homework turned in on time 5 days in a row (a whole week)

Participate more in social settings (make one/two new friends)

Learn 5 new spelling words per week.

Anything that will help your child acheive their full potential.

Re: IEP goals

Every kid is obviously different, but my step-son has four goals in his IEP. He is in the thrid grade. His goals are:

Control interruptions
Control angry outburts
Turn in work neatly and on-time
Keep desk area organized

He just brought home his most recent IEP "report card" and is 'progressing', but still a lot of room for improvement. I don't know if he's neccessarily doing BETTER (I'm sure he is a little bit)... because the teacher has stopped picking battles with him and lets him get away with a lot more for the sake of keeping him calm.
