Diagnostic Center North: Writing Measurable Goals with SEL

The purpose of this training is for service providers to have a framework to address social-emotional needs with an operationally defined and measurable system. This means first conceptualizing the problem into three categories: symptom, self-report, and coping skill. Conceptualization is followed by data collection, defining measurable goals, and identifying processes to monitor progress. All steps of this framework will be defined and explained in this training.

Participant objectives:
  • Determine the need for IEP goals for social-emotional needs.
  • Increase skills to operationalize SEL as measurable goals.
  • Increase awareness for monitoring goal progress and competency.
  • A Certificate of Completion is available to participants. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities. The Diagnostic Center is also a California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board-approved continuing professional development provider.
