This training introduces the construct of self-determination and provides an overview of relevant research, interventions, and assessments. Participants will learn how to create opportunities for students to develop self-determination at school and at home. Sample IEP goals and objectives will be shared along with strategies for monitoring student progress.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Participants will be able to define self-determination and the components of self-determined action.
  2. Participants will be able to identify examples of self-determination skills that are relevant to the age(s) of students with whom they work or parent and how they can create opportunities for students to develop self-determination skills.
  3. Participants will be able to name self-determination assessments that they can use with students.
