Integrated Co-Teaching may be provided for all subjects or on an individual subject basis. When Integrated Co-Teaching is recommended for less than the full school day, the student’s IEP must indicate the specific subjects or instructional areas in which the student requires Integrated Co-Teaching services.
The DOE’s method of funding ICT services introduced confusion in the field about the meaning of “full time” ICT services. The fact that students are considered full time for funding purposes does not mean that students are not eligible for ICT services in other subject areas, i.e., art, music, physical education, cluster and special subjects, based on their individual needs. ICT services can and should be recommended for non-“core” subjects any time a student needs the service to succeed in that subject.
Students can also receive supplementary aids and services, including special education teacher support services, or special class services for the periods they are not in an ICT class. When SETSS is provided in addition to special class services, the three hour minimum for SETSS services still applies.
