Presentation Transcript

  1. Individual Family Service Plan Information retrieved from The ERIC Clearinghouse on Disabilities and Gifted Education

  2. Role of IFSP • Provide services to a child with a disability and his/her family. • Improve the child’s daily life and natural environment • A form of early intervention

  3. The IFSP includes: • How the child has developed physically, mentally, and socially • Ways the child communicates and adapts to new things • The family’s methods of interaction with the child

  4. The IFSP also includes: • Services that are available to the child, as well as the costs and funding • Outcomes and goals for the child and family • Steps to guide the child to preschool and other educational assistance

  5. IFSP Assessment • Assists in the IFSP process • Includes a statement of the family’s concerns, an evaluation determining which services the child will benefit from, the child’s strengths and needs, and observations on the child’s behavior

  6. The IFSP Team • Consists of service coordinators, the family, and consultants • Meet to review IFSP, determine goals for the child and family, and develop intervention strategies

  7. Examples of Intervention Strategies • Teaching the child communication skills to ask for food or drink • Teaching motor skills to eat his/her food and drink • Ways to build motor skills - building blocks, coloring books • These strategies should help the child in his/her daily life, both socially and independently

  8. Follow-ups • Every six months (or whenever necessary), the team meets to discuss the plan • Goes over child’s progress and whether changes need to be made • Follow-ups aid in the child’s life, as well as the family’s understanding of their role
