Your child’s teacher is responsible for reporting back to the IEP team on your child’s progress toward meeting the academic, social, and behavioral goals and objectives outlined in the IEP. The teacher will also be asked for input about developing new goals for your child in subsequent and review IEP meetings. This underscores the importance of collaboration and continuous communication between the teacher and you on IEP goals and more. Remember, you are a valuable part of the IEP team. If you have suggestions for goals, accommodations, etc., you should bring them up at the meeting. One good practice that enhances communication is the use of a student calendar; this may be customized for an individual student and used to document your child’s progress toward each specific, measurable goal.
