The goals in the IEP ignored the skills the student needed most; skills related to social interpersonal-relationship building. Instead, the goals related to writing paragraphs. This high school student looked like a regular teen and came across as often disinterested since he wouldn’t immediately engage in assigned classroom activities. The district knew for years of his disability on the autism spectrum. Evaluations even indicated to watch for suspected depression.
Students with invisible disabilities often struggle, especially in middle and high school.
