Designated Instructional Services (DIS), sometimes called Related Services, are any services that are necessary to help a student benefit from his special education program. These services are agreed upon during a student's Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting. The DIS specialist may provide services directly to students or may work with the general education classroom teacher, special class teacher, or resource specialist in providing special instruction or adaptations.
What Services Are Available?
Related services may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Students between 3 and 22 years of age whose vision, speech, language, hearing, emotional or physical problems affect their ability to benefit from their educational program.
What else do I need to know?
The goal of Designated Instructional Services is to help students overcome or adapt to their specific disabilities both in the classroom and in daily life. Frequently the DIS specialists work with the student in the general education classroom, but services may also be provided in another location at the school. Parents are kept informed about the students' program and progress. Designed Instructional Services may be provided directly by school districts or by TCOE personnel. The need for services and the frequency of service delivery are determined by the IEP team.
