This updated third edition of COACH Choosing Outcomes & Accommodations for Children: A Guide to Educational Planning for Students with Disabilities makes it easier than ever to develop educationally sound individualized education programs (IEPs) for students with significant needs learning in inclusive classrooms.  

The COACH model organizes planning into a streamlined process that helps professionals and families collaborate on individualized educational plans that promote inclusive opportunities for students with a range of developmental disabilities. COACH has been used with great success by thousands of planning teams to develop IEPs for students ages 3-21.

Readers will learn how to

  • Implement a collaborative and family-centered approach to educational planning
  • Explore the current and future status of valued life outcomes
  • Identify appropriate curriculum areas to assess
  • Rate and select high-priority learning outcomes to be targets of instruction
  • Determine which aspects of the general education curriculum should be targets of instruction
  • Choose the supports students need to reach their goals
  • Develop meaningful annual goals and short-term objectives that reflect each student's individual priorities
  • Maintain a program-at-a-glance that keeps critical information handy throughout the school day

All of the materials needed for collaborative planning are included with this product. Ready-to-use forms for organizing goals and objectives, determining a student's learning type, scheduling class activities, planning and adapting instruction, and evaluating the impact of instruction are provided in digital form on CD-ROM. Three case studies of successful COACH implementation (for a kindergartner, an elementary school student, and a student preparing to transition from high school) are presented to demonstrate the process in action.

Using COACH will help educators and families ensure that each student's education plan has real substance, addresses individual goals, and leads directly to positive, meaningful outcomes.
