SEL Goals for IEPs: What Are They and How to Write Them

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Students who receive special education services often need additional supports that allow them to be taught in a special way. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) sets reasonable learning goals for the student and describes the services the school district will provide for the child. Educators can strengthen supports and focus on a student’s most pressing needs by incorporating SEL goals into IEPs. More and more schools are integrating SEL goals into IEPs to better prepare students for academic success.
