Work records indicate that Matt has good attendance and is almost always on time. However, he does not maintain appropriate work habits when the supervisor is not present. His completion rate is less than 50% in the supervisor’s absence. Also of concern, Matt will respond negatively to the supervisor’s verbal correction at least twice a week. These work habits will negatively influence Matt’s ability to sustain employment despite his job skills.
Goal: During the IEP year, when provided with a checklist of appropriate work habits, Matt will improve his work habits by 20% as demonstrated by employer's evaluation reports.
1. Within 18 weeks, at his job site, when the supervisor is not present, Matt will complete the assignment within the specified time on 4/5 documented trials.
2. Within 24 weeks, when provided with a checklist of appropriate work habits, Matt will have one or fewer documented incidents of responding negatively to his supervisor’s corrections (2 of 3 months).
Based on the vocational assessment and teacher observations Sara is able to deposit and withdraw money from the bank. She does not participate in the following money management tasks: managing checkbook/savings account, paying bills on time, making large purchases, performing simple budgeting. This impacts her ability to independently manage her money and pay her monthly bills which could also lead to bouncing checks and an insufficient bank account.
Goal: From annual to annual, when provided with instruction on money management, Sarah will improve her money management skills as evident by no insufficient funds on her bank account statements,
1. Within 12 weeks, when presented with a monthly income and
expenditures, Sara will create a personal budget
that is complete and void of over-expenditure
2. Within 18 weeks, when provided with her bank statement, Sara will write checks, calculate a balance and reconcile an account with a bank statement with no errors (2/3 trials).
