This infographic is designed to provide guidance about decision making for a student’s participation in the state’s AA-AAAS, which is meant for a very small number of students with significant cognitive disabilities. Start with the End in Mind uses clear language to help explain how this important decision can affect the future opportunities available to a child with a disability. It may be given to teachers in IEP trainings, provided to parents and guardians to read before an IEP team meeting, reviewed by an IEP team during an IEP team meeting, and used to talk with parents and guardians to prepare for an IEP team meeting.
