What educators are saying

I like how simple yet complete this is. I great progress monitoring tool to keep track of where a student is on the language hierarchy.
I love having this resource on-hand when planning language intervention and goals for my students. It is great for not only goal writing but lesson planning and data collection! Thank you!!


Knowing what to write for a goal can be tough, but figuring what specific targets to focus on can be just as frustrating. You spent enough time writing the goal itself, your time is too valuable to spend 30 minutes trying to think a list of verbs to target!

These pre-made goal target lists will help you better define your goals, shape your sessions, and save you precious time. The included blank template allows you to CREATE YOUR OWN.

I have found that having a list of specific goal targets sitting right next me make things significantly easier! Why have specific targets? So you can easily and effectively take data and guide your sessions! Concerned about it being limiting? Don’t be. Once they have achieved the list you have made, simply create another one for them to target.

Each list comes with 20 targets ready to go for you. There are two copies of each list, one with the option of taking a percentage if you are doing several presentation of one target in a session and another with a simple Yes or No for progress monitoring. The choice is yours!

There are lists for:

- Object and Function

- Associations

- Categories:Clothing

- Categories: Vehicles

- Categories: Fruits

- Categories: Vegetables

- Categories: Household Items

- Actions

- Spatial Concepts

- Basic Synonyms

- Basic Antonyms

- Irregular Past Tense Verbs

- Irregular Plurals

- Multiple Meaning Words

- Pragmatics ( 15 target )

- Body Parts

You can also just keep the list next you so you can put the targets right in the IEP, with a disclaimer of course ;)

*BONUS* Use the included list of Receptive and Expressive goal buzz words to help you construct your goals.

Don't see a list you need? Send me an email at and we will see what we can do about it!
