Exploring Self Determination: Closing the Gap and Improving Outcomes: Part 3

March 8, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST


If self-determination is so important, how come our postschool outcomes have not changed? This series will explore the origin of Self-determination Theory, translate theory into pedagogical practices across key environments, fill your toolbox with tools for every youth, and highlight a key practice that leads to self-determined youth and disability-aware professionals.

Part 3: Student Led IEPs

Student leadership during the IEP process is essential. This session will identify the components of a student-led IEP, acknowledge common barriers, and offer effective strategies to help your diverse learners take leadership during both the planning process and annual meeting. Relevant case studies and exemplars related to learners of varying ages (including preschool), disabilities, and communication preferences will be offered. Participants will learn:

  • Compare and contrast student-led and teacher-led IEP meetings.
  • Describe three researched-based benefits of conducting student-led IEPs.
  • Describe Levels of Participation for student participation in the IEP meeting with specific examples.
  • Describe how to use the three IMD tools in student-led IEP meetings.
