IEP Service Delivery


Service delivery includes special education and related services and participation in general (regular and vocational) education.


Special Education and Related Services


List all special education services required by the student and all related services required by the student to benefit from the student's special education program. The determination of the special education and related services is based upon the student's IEP goals and objectives that correlate to the student's present level of educational performance.


Direct Special Education Services: Direct services are specialized instructional services provided directly to the student. Instruction may be provided in the general education classroom, the special education classroom, community or other appropriate settings.


Indirect Special Education Services: Indirect services include consultation services, in which the special education educator is not responsible for direct instruction, but rather consults with the general education teacher(s) and other service providers (e.g., school psychologist, vocational counselor, guidance counselor) to assist them in developing programs appropriate for the student. The special educator may meet with the student for monitoring purposes. The general education teacher(s) of all mainstreamed students should be provided consultation services as needed.


Related Services: Related services means transportation, and such developmental, corrective and other supportive services (including speech pathology and audiology, psychological services, physical and occupational therapy, recreation, including therapeutic recreation, social work services, counseling services, including rehabilitation counseling, and medical services, except that such medical services shall be for diagnostic and evaluation purposes only) as may be required to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education.


Transition Services: The IEP for students beginning no later than the age of sixteen (16) and annually thereafter (and at a younger age, if determined appropriate) must contain a statement of needed transitional services. This includes when appropriate, a statement of the interagency responsibilities or linkages (or both) before the student leaves the school setting.


Transition services are a coordinated set of activities for a student designed with an out comeoriented process, which promotes movement from school to post school activities, including:


postsecondary education,

vocational training,

integrated employment (including supported employment),

continuing and adult education,

adult services,

independent living, and

community participation.

The coordinated set of activities shall be based on the individual student's needs, taking into account the student's preferences and interests, and shall include:


development of employment and other postschool adult living objectives,


community experiences, and, when appropriate,

acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.

NOTE: All IEPs of students age 16 and older must address needed transition services in:


the development of employment objectives

the development of adult living objectives

specialized instruction in transition areas

community experiences to meet transition goals

For each of these areas, if no transition services are needed at the time of the annual IEP, then the IEP committee must document why services are not needed.


Some students will require transition services in the areas of acquiring daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation. The inclusion of these areas on the IEP is left to the discretion of the IEP committee.
