The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) defines specially designed instruction as adapting, as appropriate to the needs of an eligible child, the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction;
Specially designed instruction is the instruction provided to a student with a disability who has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) in order to help him/her master IEP goals/objectives. Specially designed instruction is not a part of the Response to Intervention (RtI) or Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act processes, but is specific to a student who qualifies for special education services in order to help him/her master IEP goals/objectives and ensure access to and progress in the general curriculum.
