Monica G. Osgood, Profectum Foundation Executive Director
Monica G. Osgood, Co-Founder & Executive Director of Celebrate the Children School in NJ will demonstrate how to create a DIR-FCD™ model IEP and use developmental IEP goals that relate to the Common Core Standards. The various components that need to be in place in any developmental IEP will be discussed providing real-life examples. Additionally, a DIR-FCD™ model goal bank will be shared that provides an important resource for educators and parents to articulate goals which support the scope, sequence and integration of DIR model capacities to establish the foundations for successful learning. These goals can be applied in regular and inclusion programs as well as in special education in public and private settings. The goals provide direction, benchmarks and tools to support and ensure accountability among school personnel. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how to use IEP goals to represent the critical elements of comprehensive programs for children within the DIR-FCD™ model framework in various settings.
