Writing Effective PLAAFP Statements
An effective PLAAFP statement should read like a biography or 3rd person narrative because it is the driving force of the IEP. It needs to paint a clear picture of the student's abilities and struggles both academically and functionally. In order to develop a fully informed, clearly defined PLAAFP statement it is necessary to move away from using a bulleted list of preloaded options. Be detailed, be specific, use the FIE for cognitive strengths and weaknesses, use academic teacher feedback, write a strength for every weakness and write to paint a clear picture of what the student can do and how the student's disability impacts his or her access to the general education curriculum.
