Do you want to create goals that are easier to monitor? In this goal-writing course, Peggy will highlight critical components of therapy goals that are participation-based/occupation-based. More importantly, learners will learn concrete strategies to ensure that their goals will be easy to monitor. Peggy will also discuss the creation of an accompanying simple data collection system to track progress, that will help you make decisions whether the child is on track, or it’s time to modify therapeutic interventions or goals.

Easy Goals - 1
GREAT Information!! This is the best goal writing information I have received thus far!!

Easy Goals 2
I especially liked the data collection systems. I feel that teachers or paras would be less resistance to fill out the simple yes/no data collection.

- OT with 9 years experience

Easy Goals 3
This is a game-changer for me for writing and analyzing goals. Love the Excel worksheet example!

- PT with 10 years experience
