The outcome section of the IFSP documents the desired outcomes that the family has identified in order of priority. Sometimes AT will be included as a goal or outcome. However, most likely it will be included as a strategy used to reach the goal. If AT is currently being used, a statement may be added in this section. This documented statement will provide unfamiliar professionals information regarding what AT the child is using as a strategy to meet IFSP goals.
Example: Bailey will play outside with her brother. We will know she can do this when she can move around the playground or yard. Bailey currently uses the KidWalk to move around the playground.
At the IFSP Review, AT that is currently or has previously been used should be included in the Summary of Progress section.
Example: Carter has learned to use a Jelly Bean Switch to turn on a Spinning Light Show toy. He is currently learning to use the 7-Level Communication Builder to communicate: more, go, yay, and no.
