The document Considerations for Specially Designed Instruction (below) is provided as guidance for IEP teams, administrators, educators, and practitioners as they determine the need for, plan, and implement specially designed instruction (SDI) for students with disabilities. This document is intended to assist LEA Self-Assessment teams as they engage in problem solving and improvement planning specific to outcomes for students with disabilities. Also included is a data collection tool developed by the NCDPI Exceptional Children Division that LEAs may use to collect data across settings and schools to problem solve the provision and effectiveness of the delivery of specially designed instruction.
