Instruction and practice in developing self-determination skills should begin early in a student's career. In this activity on Paths to Literacy, a 3rd grade student with albinism created a book about her IEP (Individual Educational Program), including what accommodations she needed, what her goals and objectives were, members of the IEP team and more. By participating actively in the IEP process, she began to develop self-determination skills in elementary skills. This will help her to advocate for herself as she makes the transition to new schools and to adult life.
