So sorry for the loss of your OT's son. How terrible.
We are required to take data on each IEP goal bi-weekly and to enter our scores right away. If a child has 4 pts. above or below the trend line we are required to state that we changed instruction, materials, etc. to assist the child in moving up. A message comes up in red on the graph if they are above or below the line. If they are above the line it will say that you might consider changing the goal. One choice is to change nothing but to indicate that data was looked at and changes were considered. Our special ed. director monitors who is getting their data graphed in a timely manner and who isn't. Forces some people to do their jobs for once and I like that!

Thank you - I have never seen graphs on IEPs either (37 years of sp.ed.) and was beginning to wonder if I was missing something. We do our best to give a clear picture of the child's strengths and weaknesses. I am currently working with 2 IEP's from other counties that were very thorough and I SO appreciate all the information.

I have never seen an IEP with graphs. What are they graphing? Is it part of your IEP software? Been doing IEP for 26 years, and only recently (2 years) can we import state testing data. Sounds wonderful. And come to think of it, I have received a lot of out of state IEPs that meed re-written to meet our state wording, but still never seen graphs except the graphs of the hearing specialists from an auditory exam.

I went to my IEP for a preschooler and for a kid whose IEP was written towards the end of May and there were no graphs to record data on. I didn't realize you can submit and get an IEP implemented without graphs. Since the IEPS were at the end of the year the previous teacher just didn't do them. I've never done that in my life. I know it doesn't take long to set them up, but when your to do list already has a million things on it you don't need any more added. Oh well. I did their job and got them set up.

Haven't been in school a week and already I'm revising an IEP to include a BIP.....What a mess for a 'new' old teacher (new to sped, but with 25 yrs experience)!! Still, it needs to be done...Should have been done by the prior teacher...I think that's why she's a 'prior' teacher and not a 'current' one...
