Setting SMART Goals

P6145-cover1-714x1024 (1)This week’s FREE tool is a nifty mnemonic to help you set SMART goals when transition planning. It comes from CEC’s Building Alliances, which identifies goal setting as the first step when building an action plan for transition. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Results focused, and Time bound—and they’ll make an excellent springboard for your transition team action plan! If you’re looking for more great ideas on teambuilding and transition, Building Alliances: A How-to Manual to Support Transitioning Youth provides a step-by-step guide to collaborating with families and other professionals at the school, district, and community levels. With Building Alliances, you and your team can guide your students into social, educational, and employment opportunities post-school. Now that’s SMART!
