This lesson is intended to help users understand how a PLAAFP is generated by Illuminate.
The PLAAFP statement is dynamically created based on information entered on the Student Strengths and Needs Page of the IEP.
Information in the PLAAFP comes from combining the Student Strength, Baseline Data, and the selected Impact Statement.
Hopefully, this lesson will help to demystify the process and help you to understand how Illuminate automatically generates PLAAFP statements.
