ASPIRE and SDLMI help students build self-determination skills in order to reach their goals. ASPIRE, or Active Participation Inspires REAL Engagement, is the process of involving students with disabilities in their IEP meetings, thus allowing them to learn to advocate for themselves and discuss their strengths and needs. The SDLMI, or Self-Determined Learning Model of Instruction, is based on the principles of self-determination and student involvement.  The SDLMI is used by educators to support students in problem solving, goal setting, self-monitoring, self-evaluation, working toward and achieving goals related to academic and transition domains, and achieving better outcomes as he or she moves into adulthood.
