Methodology in IEP's

General. The IEP for each child with a disability must include--...

A statement of the special education and related services and supplementary aids and services to be provided to the child, or on behalf of the child, and a statement of the program, modifications or supports for school personnel that will be provided for the child-- (i) To advance appropriately toward attaining the annual goals; (ii) To be involved and progress in the general curriculum in accordance with paragraph (a)(1) of this section and to participate > in extracurricular and other nonacademic activities; and (iii) To be educated and participate with other children with disabilities and non-disabled children in the activities described in this section. In short: the IEP must include a statement of the special education to be provided (300.347(a)(3)), and special education is defined to include "content, methodology or delivery of instruction." (300.26(a)(3)). The regulations also speak in the future. The IEP must specify the methodology "to be" provided, not that a methodology must be developed. The regulations make clear that the methodology must be good enough so that the child can advance toward attaining the annual goals and to progress in the general curriculum.
