By this time, you are not a stranger to goals. Even the most goal-oriented adult sees targeted outcomes with new determination when it involves a child with special needs. Goal setting may have started with an Individualized Family Service Plan in which your family outlined desired goals for your baby. As he enters school, an educational team will lead the way in developing needed academic, physical, and social goals for his IEP. As he prepares to leave high school, your child himself will lead the plan for his future.
