The individual planning process is the central mechanism for decision -making for students with learning delays or disability. This process results in an individualised document designed for one student that records what is additional or different from a teacher’s regular, differentiated planning. Hence, it is a customised learning plan that describes the student's performance, sets agreed educational goals and objectives to meet future learning needs and explains the support needed to achieve these goals. Therefore, individual plans play a vital role in improving outcomes for students.

The presenter will explore:

Evidence based learning- we will discuss the definition of evidence based practices, how to determine which practices meet this criteria and the practices that meet this criteria.

Universal Design- universal design should be in built into our planning so that we don't unnecessarily make adjustments for individual students. It is much easier to make the adjustment for everyone and build it into our teaching/ learning/ environment.

Differentiation and Adjustments-Differentiation in content, process or product is what all teachers do to meet all the needs of all students. Adjustments, on the other hand, are negotiated, possibly by a team, and are signed off the student and parents.

Relationships with parents- positive relationships with parents are essential for improved outcomes for students with delays or disabilities. We will share research findings into relationships between schools and parents and provide practical and helpful strategies to make your learning context inclusive of parents from diverse backgrounds.

Creating a meaningful personalised learning plan- in this section of the workshop we will discuss the legal obligations within the planning process along with practical considerations to ensure that the process is collaborative and the final document is one that guides our teaching and informs our assessment.

Writing SMARTAR goals- SMARTAR are a way of breaking down functional goals into achievable parts through the use of precise language. We will examine SMARTAR goals and look at writing goals in a hands on activity. As well we will discuss how to ensure that goals are strength based, robust and effective.

Assessment through practical data collection-we will review the basics of data collection and discuss how these basic strategies can be adapted and individualised for the needs of a student or group of students.

Reinforcement: Proactive strategies to support children and students- we will talk about reinforcement, more commonly known as rewards; what is it, how does it work, how can you plan for it, and how can you problem solve when you have tried ‘everything’ and it ‘just doesn’t work’.

Intended Audience:

Junior primary, primary teachers & special educators/ teachers.
