There are 13 federal mandates for IEP goals and the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. acronym prompts each to ensure all the necessary components are addressed. This template is a great tool to facilitate a collaborative process. This is a valuable template for parents, advocates, school staff, administrators, and university professors who teach college students in education majors and related services fields.
