aspergers IEP goals

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a student in my learning support classroom who was just tested for autism. He came up as high functioning aspergers. He also has emotional disturbance. I did his academic goals, but was told I have to do life skills goals. Isn't that for the OT/PT to do? The speech teacher made it very clear it is not her job, but that it has to be put into his IEP. Since it seems to be on me, could anyone help me? I've never done life skills goals before. I've tried to look up samples on the web, but can't seem to find ones for him. Or maybe I really just don't understand it completely. TIA

You need to write social and language goals for him.
Try this:

Examples of IEP Goals and Objectives Suggestions For Students With Autism

Hope this helps.

why didn't that one come up in my search? Thanks!

just curious, why do I have to write language goals for him? Isn't that her job? It has been for other IEP's I've done with speech or language needs.

Not trying to be resistant, just not understanding.

Yes, that's definitely her job. Make sure she writes language goals that address his core deficits that a child with aspergers has.. (not goals like john will clearly say the s sound..etc) Look at the lang goals that are in the link..but yes, she should do them. Look at the link and scroll to number 3. These are social communication goals.

He doesn't need life skill goals what he needs is social skill goals and social skill instruction. This is because aspergers is a form of emotional disturbance although it has its own unique properties. As a result it falls to your own knowledge... Look up Carol Gray her books can help writing social stories. As for which skills to teach try Goldstein social skills instruction. Gook Luck- keep us posted.

Wow! Our speech path is in charge of all language goals and social skills goals for our students on the spectrum. It's the speech path's expertise, not the sped teacher's.

Do you mean social communiciation, teacher sue?

Social Skills and Social Communication are two different things. I always write the social skills goals because I deliver the instruction for that. Even if the school psych gives a social skills class here and there, I still write the goals. As far as Social Communication, yes, that's the speech therapist's realm. That and all language goals. I am the case manager and it's my job to make sure that therapy is delivered, but it's her area of expertise. I WISH social skills was her thing though....she is always telling me that she does NOT deal with behavior and that it is not her area at all.

No. I mean our speech path writes both types of goals. She is in charge of delivering the social skills therapy with the kids on the spectrum and monitoring their progress. She also writes any language goal a kid needs, but the sped teachers implement the goals and measure the progress on those goals.

Our speech path only case carries speech only kids (articulation, fluency, etc) and the sped teachers carry the kids on the spectrum.

Grace Slick, Aspergers Syndrome is NOT a form of emotional disturbance and neither is Autism. Emotional disturbance may be a secondary condition as with any other disorder. Please check the DSM IV.
