(4.26) Must an IEP for a student with a disability include annual goals that address all areas of the general curriculum?

No. The IEP needs to address only areas of the general curriculum affected by the student’s disability. If your child’s disability affects reading and writing, but not math skills, no general education math goals are required. Functional deficits that impact all or much of the general curriculum can also be addressed by providing appropriate accommodations or modifications to the student in the general education classroom. For instance, a student with attention deficits might be seated in the front of the classroom, or a student with an auditory processing problem might be given a student note-taker. See Chapter 7, Information on Least Restrictive Environment.
