Individualized Education Program (IEP) & Individualized Animal-Assisted Intervention (IAAI)

The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a document that developed for each child who needs special education. The IEP usually includes how the student learns, how the student best demonstrates that learning and what teachers and service providers will do to help the student learn more effectively. For children with autism and children with certain other disabilities, the creation of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is important for them to receive education especially in public school. It is aimed to meet that child’s specific special education needs. Besides that, it sets goals and objectives, describes what services a child will receive as part of his or her special education program in order to improve their education levels and quality of life.

We know that Animal-Assisted Intervention is one of the therapies which is about using animals as intervention to help the autistic children to achieve particular goals. As for the Individualized Animal-Assisted Intervention (IAAI), it refers to the programme that we would create for each child based on his/her preference towards certain animals and own problems to be solved. Of course, we will always take note of the individual’s religion and taboo at the same time. The purpose of creating IAAI is to carry out the most effectiveness of AAI to the autistic children, helps to improve the problems they encountered and even achieve on some goals.

个体化教育计划(IEP)& 体化动物辅助干预(IAAI)

个体化教育计划(IEP)是为每个需要特殊教育的儿童制定的文件。IEP通常包括学生该如何学习,如何最好地展示学习以及教师和服务提供者将如何帮助学生更有效地学习。对于自闭症和患有某些其他残疾的儿童来说,创建个性化教育计划(IEP)对于他们接受教育是非常重要的,尤其是在公立学校。它的主要目的在满足该儿童的特殊教育需求。除此之外,它还设定了目标,描述了儿童作为其特殊教育计划的一部分将获得哪些服务,以提高他们的教育水平和生活质量。

我们知道动物辅助干预是使用动物作为干预来帮助自闭症儿童实现特定目标的疗法之一。至于个体化动物辅助干预(IAAI),它指的是我们将根据孩子对某些动物的偏好和自己面临问题,为他们创建的计划。当然,我们在制定计划时会注意到个人的宗教信仰和禁忌。创建IAAI的目的是为自闭症儿童实现最有效AAI,以便有助于改善他们遇到的问题,甚至实现某些设下的目标。
