Think about a time when you really wanted someone - a teacher - to know stuff about you but you really didn’t want to have to take the time and the words to explain it. Think about your IEP. How long does it take for anyone to look at it and find out the important things about you? The One-Pager was created as a way to cut through all of that paper and get at the important stuff quickly and all on one page.
What it is
The One-Pager is a simple tool to help provide important information about you.
What it does
The four categories:
My Strengths, My Preferences, My Interests, My Needs
You identify these categories (with assistance from parents, teachers, etc.) to introduce yourselves to new teachers, employers, case managers and others in your support system to clarify your needs and goals based on your strengths and interests.
How to do it
Use the apps! The iOS app works only with iPads and includes a Teacher Dashboard that allows teachers to track and manage their class. The Web app works on any connected device or computer.
Type or hand write, use picture symbols or objects.
Use a cell phone, iPad (or similar device) to explain the document (embedded in template-directions on website).
Email it to teachers, employers, and others.
