The Passport is a guide to assist families and school personnel in ensuring that typical grade-appropriate opportunities are provided for students with ASD.
- How does the Passport work?
- For each grade level, there are two examples of home and school expectations. These expectations describe activities, opportunities, or skills that are typical of students at a particular grade-level. There is also a blank area to select another alternative. Both the school and family should maintain separate copies of the Passport, and update both versions as they meet for the IEP, or to review goal progress. This is to ensure typical grade-level experiences occur for the student with ASD.
