How To Be The Best Advocate For Your Students

present level of performance Aug 29, 2021

Let’s be honest, being an advocate for your student is hard work. I know. I’ve been there.

You never know whether to ask for more or back off or if what you’re doing will benefit or hurt your student. Who knows if you’re asking the right questions or getting the right programs?

Unfortunately, there is no guidebook on advocating for your student

But there is a strategic way to write PLOP’s that spark action.

What are the two major areas of PLOP?

Present Levels of Functional Performance: Functional performance is generally understood to refer to skills or activities that are not considered academic and are often used in the context of routine activities of everyday living. Include post-school area, strengths, and needs.

Present Levels of Academic Performance: Describe the student’s strengths and needs in areas such as reading, writing, math, and other relevant subjects that are related to the student’s post-school goals. Include post-school area, strengths, and needs.

Important Information to Note

  1. The current achievement level should explain what a student can do.
  2. The description should not focus on what they can’t do.
  3. When you read the PLOP anyone should have a clear understanding of the student and what they can do.
