Least Restrictive Environment:
Effective IEP Development (PART 2)

Development of Goals and Objectives

Presented by: Dr. Damian Petino, Psy. D
Dr. Damian Petino works as a Behavior Specialist, and as LRC North Satellite Consultant. In addition, he works for the Office of Special Education (Professional Development/ OSEPD) at the New Jersey Department of Education. Dr. Petino is a NJ certified school psychologist and a NJ licensed psychologist who has been serving special education students and their families in a variety of roles and settings since 1999. Damian earned his undergraduate degree from Rutgers University in Biology and Psychology, and began his career as a behavior manager in an out-of-district school serving students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. In 2010, he earned his doctorate in school psychology from the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University and began working as one of the Assistant Project Directors of Project: Natural Setting Therapeutic Management, providing behavior consultation and program development services to a variety of school districts throughout New Jersey. In his role at the Department of Education, Damian provides consultation, training, and technical assistance in the areas of behavioral assessment and intervention.
The Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) mandate is one of the key considerations in the development of an appropriate Individualized Education Plan (IEP). This workshop will review a framework for effective decision-making that emphasizes the importance of assessing individual student needs and how these identified needs are linked to annual measurable goals, supports for students, supports for school personnel, and the measurement of student progress. As this framework is reviewed, specific strategies will be discussed to support more students with disabilities in general education settings as well as methods to facilitate family engagement in the IEP process.
