    Hello! We live in a state that recognizes intellectual giftedness as a potential disability and in some cases, students receive IEPs. Our son is a rising 2nd grader and we are working alongside the special ed teacher and G&T teacher to create his IEP goals.

    Do any of you have elementary age children with IEPs for their giftedness? If so, I would love to hear what goals (or types of goals) have been helpful for your child.

    Additional context: Accommodations will likely include some curriculum compacting and grade acceleration (for ELA and math only). There will be ELA and math goals.

    I do not, but others do or have in the past.
    Perhaps some of them will chime in.

    Welcome, SCC30!

    If you use the Advanced search feature, and look for GIEP, you may find previous discussion threads of interest.

    These links may also be of interest:
