8. Monitor Faithfulness of Implementation of the Plan
It is good practice for the IEP team to include two evaluation procedures. One evaluation plan should be designed to monitor the faithfulness of the implementation of the plan. In other words, the team should determine a way to monitor the consistency and accuracy with which the intervention plan is implemented. This will be easier if the team precisely spells out the various components of the intervention plan, along with the individuals responsible for implementing each component. A "self-check" or checklist can then be created to correspond with each component. Another option is to develop written scripts or lists that detail the responsibilities of each individual participating in implementation of the plan. The script might specify both verbal and non-verbal responses organized according to setting events, antecedent events, and consequent events. In either case, monitoring should occur about every three to five days to assess the faithfulness with which the plan is implemented.
