We are identifying (assuming we decide she qualifies at the meeting) a 4th grade student for EBD. I have never worked with her and don't know her very well at all, aside from seeing some of her very public meltdowns. She's incredibly smart and does well in school despite being out of the classroom a lot of the time due to behavior, so she's never needed my classes. The IEP will allow her to have access to the school psych for counseling. I've worked with the classroom teacher some on behavior plans. I've never written an IEP for EBD- I had one student in that category when I first started, but she had a Tri that year, didn't qualify, and was exited. The student's main problem is meltdowns. She used to be violent towards others but has done a lot better with that this year. Now it's mostly just crying/screaming/refusing to go back to work. She's also run away from the building before and luckily people saw it and were able to chase her down. What do goals typically look like for these students? I only have my one previous student's goals to go off of and I know she had one to get back on task within 3 minutes of a "mildly upsetting incident". I'm not sure how to define "mildly upsetting" or if that was a good goal or not- I have NO training or experience in this area.
