FIE to IEP – the ABCs of a Well-Written Plan

Team workFIE to IEP pictureThere are many aspects to writing a complete Individualized Education Program (IEP). These documents, when well-written, can be assets to the students they are designed for as well as their teachers.  It takes a multidisciplinary team to create such dynamic and effective plans.

This two-day training will focus on combining the details of a Full Individual Evaluation (FIE) with the knowledge of good instructional practice to write powerful PLAAFP statements which will lead to student-focused goalsTeams that include both assessment personnel and special education teachers will benefit from working together during these two days.

Participants will leave with tools to support their efforts for well-written IEPs aligned to the standards.  This intensive instruction will allow time for participant practice, reflection, and  individual questions.

FBA & BIP Issues and Strategies


FBA & BIP Issues and Strategies Workshop

Join us for a day of learning to support a behavioral team in facilitating a smooth FBA and BIP process in even the most difficult situations.

As a district-level specialist, LSSP, SLP, teacher, or other related service provider, you know the importance of an FBA and a quality BIP, and you probably conduct them on a regular basis.  The purpose of this workshop is to provide solutions to common difficulties as well as provide an update on current research in the field. We will spend the morning reviewing the FBA process, during which current evidence-based strategies and best practices will be shared and practiced. In the afternoon, we will focus on developing and implementing a “quality” BIP, again reviewing evidence-based strategies and best practices with a special focus on prevention strategies and function-based interventions. Those who do not regularly conduct FBAs and develop BIPs will learn how to do so through this hands-on, interactive workshop.
