Kinnick's IEP Goals

Kinnick's IEP goals for the year....

  • Given instruction in orientation and mobility, Kinnick will develop functional use of laterality and directionality in relation to self by correctly responding to commands involving "left", "right", "in front" and "behind" with 80% accuracy.
  • Kinnick will demonstrate the following functional fine motor, and cognitive skills: Put small objects into a small hole in a container maintaining a pincer grasp on the object. Donning pants and shirt independently with the exception of fasteners. Place and identify 3/3 shapes in a form board. Participate in at least 5 different 2 handed tasks in which each hand has a different action (ex. stringing beads, screwing on/off lids).
  • Kinnick will increase self feeding skills and oral motor awareness by demonstrating the following on 3 of 4 occasions: Enjoy 2-3 bites of a variety of foods while she utilizes an eating utensil. Enjoy 2-3 sips from an open cup.
  • Given braille materials and a braillewriter, Kinnick will demonstrate the following pre-braille tactual skills: Various fine motor activities, tracking tactile symbols with two hands from left to right, scribbling on the braillewriter, and differentiating between braille and tactile symbols, on 4/5 opportunities.
  • Given direct braille instruction, Kinnick will tactually recognize all 26 letters of the alphabet with 80% accuracy.
  • Given shapes, Kinnick will scan, identify and discriminate between a circle, square and triangle with or without a lightbox with 80% accuracy.
  • Kinnick will complete the following functional gross motor skills with 75% accuracy: Going up/down a flight of stairs at home marking time using hand rail or wall without physical prompts. Pedaling a trike with contact guard to stand by assist for a distance of 10-15' to work on lower extremity strength. Stand on either leg 3-5 seconds without loosing balance. Bunny hopping, clearing both feet together at the same time, of the ground 2-3 times.
  • Kinnick will produce 2-4 word utterances using signs, and or words, for a variety of pragnmatic functions (comment, reqest, label, indicate a want or need, request assistance, answer yes/no, gain a person's attention) with 80% accuracy across 3 consecutive interactions with multiple educators and peers.
  • Using signs or words, Kinnick will receptively or expressively answer a variety of simple wh- (what, who, where, how) questions, during 4/5 opportunities with a variety of educators. Questions may include (What is _____? How does she feel?)
  • Kinnick will correctly produce early developing consonants (p, m, n, g, k) in the initial and final position of words, with 70% overall accuracy.
This may not sound like much, but try doing them with your eyes closed. Suddenly, they all become a bit more difficult.

I'm excited to see Kinnick meet all of these new goals. She's off to a good start. Tonight, Kinnick counted from 1-10 without help! Of course when we got the recorder, she refused to count for us. We'll work on getting it on video. She has also started using a tippy cup. She lifts the cup, brings it to her mouth, and takes a few sips. It's a start!
