It is IEP time for some of us. (Tis' the season.) Many of us are always looking for ways to make our IEP meetings focus on the positive, be less challenging for families and caregivers to face (how easy it is for us to forget that IEPs can be so difficult for families when we sit so through so many year after year) and help all TEAM members focus on positive goals, expectations and new beginnings for the next year.
The abilities box is one way we can keep the focus on a student's gift. Offered by the Disability is Natural Store for ten dollars each, including choice of slogans on the sides, "gift cards" and bow.
While you are at the Disability is Natural Store you can check out their other products from training materials to magnets and posters. (My personal favorite product line of theirs is the "Presume Competence" products. I also think it is my dearest held believe and that which has the potential to make biggest difference in the life of my students.)
