What is the Alternative Service Delivery Model (ASDM) Plan for students receiving special education services?

The ASDM plan amends the IEP to include any revisions based on the method of service delivery. This amendment addresses how the student’s specially designed instruction and IEP services will be implemented and evaluated.  

The ASDM amendment to the IEP may be implemented through co-teaching by special education teachers during general education instruction, individual or small-group instruction, adaptations to assignments to support access and to address IEP goals, related services via teletherapy, and opportunities for students to engage in instruction and social interactions with peers.

The ASDM amendment to the IEP requires individual, child-specific determinations about the delivery of specially designed instruction and IEP implementation. Collaboration with parents is also required.
