Specially Designed Instruction:
Type of instruction (break down tasks - model, prompt, provide immediate
Group size (large/small group, individual)
Types of services (direct, consultative)
Conditions (given/with grade level materials...)
Do NOT put specific names of systems/products - describe what they are
or do such as a multisensory system of instruction.
Ex: In the large group general education co-taught classroom, student will be
provided with highlighted notes, will use graphic organizers, and use grade-
level materials with verbal prompts and immediate feedback during class
lectures or independent work
Ex: Individual or small group instruction to model, re-teach and practice skills
taught in the general education classroom using graphic organizers, a
calculator and multiplication table
Amount of time: list only the amount of time spent working on
that goal, NOT the whole time you have the student in class
Ensure that all related service providers complete this section
Ex: Speech/Language Services specifically targeting receptive and expressive
language skills, individually, in a small group setting an/or in the classroom
utilizing modeling, corrective feedback, and repeated practice.
This section relates to an assistive technology service - a device or service
that directly assists a student to increase, maintain, or improve functional
capabilities (does not need to be electronic)
Do not state a brand name (use "tablet" rather than "iPad")
For hearing impaired students
Ex: School provided FM system to access spoken instruction and other auditory
information in the classroom
AT could also be an accommodation if student, parents, and teachers
know how to use it- bubble seat, pencil grip, slant board
Must include all accommodations from section 12
Include any additional that are classroom appropriate but not allowable
on testing page (section 12)
Be sure to differentiate between general education and Special education
classroom accommodations . Most are the same, list out for each.
Suggest: General education Classrooms : then list accommodations
Resource Room: then list accommodations
Confirm that the accommodations are aligned with disability area(s); ex - if
only SLD Math, would not need accommodation of "read aloud"
Confirm they are truly accommodations - they should NOT change the
content or mastery level of an assignment
Make sure this section is individualized and not the same for all students
If students are taking a regular state assessment (not alternate
assessment), there should not be modifications listed to academics.
If using a modified curriculum that is extended standards from ODE list
Modification for physical needs, etc. can be listed here.
Support of School Personnel
Examples: Consultation for sensory needs, CPI, CPR, Instruction on
Autism. Attendant to assist student with toileting, feeding, moving through
the building, or for Safety. (Attendant is a last resort as it makes students
more dependent on adults – some students are physically dependent on
adults to manage their day so that they can attend to educational
activities.)**If an attendant is added to an IEP the plan for use of
attendant and diminishing the use of the attendant needs to be
considered and addressed.

Meds taken at school that requires training?
