Influences of language, culture, and family background

The Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP) section of an Individualized Education Plan should drive all subsequent content of the IEP, including goals and services. Formal assessment data and information gathered via parent/teacher interviews are primary sources of information to create a PLAAFP. It is important that teachers be able to analyze and summarize such data and information to collaborate with IEP team members when developing a PLAAFP.

Review “RTI Case Study: Laney.”

Based on the information provided, begin the process of drafting a 250-500 word summary of Laney’s current educational performance that could later be incorporated into the PLAAFP section of an IEP.

Your summary should include the following student information:

Academic strengths

Results from evaluations

Performance in classes

Influences of language, culture, and family background

Strengths, preferences, and interests in nonacademic areas

Any other relevant issues

Any additional information that should be collected

In an additional 150-250 words, reflect upon why it is important to know the potential effect of differences in values, languages, and customs that can exist between the home and school. Support your reflection with 1-2 scholarly resources.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
