In December 2010, the New Jersey Department of Education issued a memo to School Superintendents regarding students whose disabilities do not impact on learning in every subject.
The Department emphasized that, for such students, goals and objectives must address “…other skill areas, including but not limited to social skills, communication skills, organizational skills, study skills, self-regulatory skills, transition skills, etc. in response to the individual student’s needs.”
