Supplementary Aids, Services, and Personnel Supports

As used in this part, the term "supplementary aids, services, and personnel supports" means aids, services, program modifications, and/or supports for school personnel that are provided in regular education classes or other education-related settings to enable students with disabilities to be educated with students who are non-disabled [34 CFR 300.28].


Supplementary aids, services, and supports may include peer tutoring, interpreters, and paraprofessional personnel, as well as any other instructional support provided in conjunction with general education. This section may also include calculators, tapes, tape recorders, notes, and other technology devices and services. Supplementary aids, services and supports may be provided either through general education or special education.


The Other Considerations area below the chart must be checked to indicate consideration of timelines for the implementation of the supplementary aids/services/personnel supports listed above (if any). Please note any exceptions to beginning and ending dates, and locations.


Amount of Time and Frequency

Under amount of time, frequency and duration it is permissible to write "as needed" as long as a description is included of the conditions under which the supplementary aid/service/support will be provided. For example, for a student with a physical disability, a paraprofessional may needed to assist the student in chemistry class whenever the class conducts lab experiments.



The "location" of services in the context of an IEP generally refers to the type of environment that is the appropriate place for provision of the service. For example, is the related service to be provided in the student's regular classroom or in a resource room? (See Attachment 1 to 34 CFR 300, Analysis of Comments and Changes, pg. 12594).
