Getting ready to go back to school?? Me too. I am excited about seeing the students. But, oh, the paperwork sure gets overwhelming quickly! I think I could safely say that 40% of my job is paperwork. And from what I understand, that may be more for health-care based SLPs. Fortunately, I tend to be pretty good at paperwork. Unfortunately, I don’t enjoy it.
Start your year off right this year (and get your general education teachers in a habit of providing quick and painless input for IEPs) with these awesome Common Core Teacher Input Forms for IEPs!
I developed an input form for teachers to give present levels of performance including strengths, concerns, current academic levels and test scores. Included are fillable pdfs so the general education teacher can type directly into the form and email it back!
Here is the “Teacher Input Form” that I email to each teacher about 2 weeks before an IEP. They can type scores, strengths/weaknesses, and concerns straight into the form and email it back to me!
And I also email the teacher a one page (quick and easy!!) form that goes over many of the Common Core Standards for that grade level. I chose these standards specifically because they can easily be developed into fabulous, measurable speech/language goals.
Poof! Painless for the teacher and sooooo helpful for me! I use the teacher’s input to write out the IEP present levels and develop new goals for next year! Buy your copy of these K-12 forms here!
Hope these help with your paperwork woes! I wish I could eliminate them all for you!
