Examples of Goals from “Sensory Motor Integration and Learning with Yoga” by April Merrilee, MA, OTR:
Postural Control
Perceptual Skills

Organization:
Attention &
Behavior
Fine Motor/Gross
Motor
- Stand on one leg for 5 (or 10) seconds without twisting trunk, waving arms or stepping down.
- Maintain both flexion and extension posture for 5 (or 10) seconds without stopping.
- Smoothly and accurately transition from one physical posture to the next without losing balance.
- Maintain upright seated posture on floor without support of hands for 30 seconds.
- Use drawings to correctly imitate postures with accurate spatial orientation of body parts.
- Sequence a series of physical postures in correct order using visual memory, motor planning and motor
memory skills.
- Organize a series of drawings into correct sequential order.
- Correctly match printed words with drawings of physical postures.
- Maintain steady visual gaze upon relevant object for minimum of 2 minutes without distraction.
- Effectively practice deep belly breathing for at least 10 breaths, independently and without stopping
- Participate in functional activities at table top for at least 10 minutes without leaving the table.
- Demonstrate independent work behavior by organizing materials and staying on task for at least 10
minutes with no more than one verbal cue.
- Participate in structured group activity for at least 10 (or 20) minutes without leaving the group.
- Maintain weight bearing posture on open hands for at least 10 seconds without collapsing.
- Exhibit efficient use of crayons, pencils and markers for 10 minutes.
- Accurately trace shapes with no more than 2 (or 3) errors per activity.

- Complete fine motor project within allotted time frame with minimal cueing.
- Accurately cut around small objects using correct scissor grip, with no more than 2 (or 3) errors per
activity.
Considerations to keep in mind when writing goals and objectives:
1. What type of service will be provided for the student, ie Direct – Pullout, Integrated in the Classroom, and Consult – are the
activities attached to the objective doable within that service model. For example, gross motor skills are hard to work on for
Integrated service.
2. What skills are you targeting for growth? How will you collect data to show progress (or lack of progress)?
15
3. Are there academic goals and objectives such as writing goals that can be supported by OT, so that separate OT
goals/objectives are not needed. Make a statement on page 8 to clarify what OT will address.
4. Utilize the resources in First Class for IEP guidelines and writing goals and objectives. Go to ISS Conference>SPED
Conference>Nuts & Bolts Conference>Articles and Resources Folder. All resources in here are helpful to refer to from time
to time.
