Slide 26: EXAMPLE - Supports for School Personnel on Behalf of the Student
The IEP must describe the supports for school personnel that will be provided on behalf of the student in order for the student to advance toward attaining the annual goals, to be involved in and progress in the general curriculum and to participate in extracurricular and other nonacademic activities. Supports for school personnel are those that would help them to more effectively work with the student. These could include, for example, special training for a student’s teacher. These supports for school personnel are those that are needed to meet the unique and specific needs of the student.
Examples of supports that may be provided for school personnel include:
information on a specific disability and implications for instruction;
training in use of specific positive behavioral interventions;
training in the use of American Sign Language;
assistance with curriculum modifications;
behavioral consultation with school psychologist, social worker or other behavioral consultant; and/or
transitional support services.
This slide shows an example of how Supports for School Personnel on Behalf of the Student can be documented in an IEP.
