Does anyone have any organizational goals in their child's IEP? My gfg is very unorganized and if he doesn't learn to be organized now, he is going to have many more problems in school as time goes on.
He forgets his coat and lunch bags almost daily. I contacted the teacher who said that time of day is hectic and she would try to remind him. That didn't work. I contacted his IEP team lead and she made a sign to put on the door that says something like 'Did you remember your coat, lunch, backpack?'. She had gfg help her hang it on the door. That didn't work. I am now wondering if we should add some organizational goals and objective to his IEP. Something like the following:
[Gfg] will increase his organizational skills for classroom work and homework from rarely to routinely being organized as measured by teacher and parent observation.
Objective #1 [Gfg] will utilize a personal daily checklist attached to his folder to ensure items are not forgotten
Objective #2 [Gfg] will utilize a homework folder with monthly assignment calendar so homework can be checked off by [Gfg] and signed off by parent daily
The inside of his desk is also a disaster - I remember when I was in school, we had desk inspection! I guess they don't have time for that now. He can never find anything, forgets things, etc. It's classic ADHD behavior. What will help him with this? I can't imagine him in Jr High or High School with several classes per day. Ugggh.
