DESIGNATED INSTRUCTION AND SERVICES (DIS)
 
DIS services include speech and language therapy, adapted physical education, itinerant services for the hard of hearing or visually impaired, counseling and other specific types of instruction required for the pupil to benefit educationally from his or her instructional program.  The child generally receives DIS services at school during the regular school day.  DIS services may be the only special education a student requires, or they may be provided in conjunction with other special education programs.
 
RESOURCE SPECIALIST PROGRAM (RSP)
 
Students in the Resource Specialist Program are assigned to their regular classrooms for the majority of the school day but receive special education instruction and/or consultation services from the Resource Specialist.  Services may also be provided directly to the student in the regular classroom and/or in the resource room.  Services may also be provided through consultation to the regular education teachers.
 
SPECIAL DAY CLASS (SDC)
 
Special Day Class (SDC) placements are made for those students who need individualized and small group instruction for a significant portion of their school day.  Special day classes are located at various schools throughout the district, so a child who is determined eligible for special day class may attend a school other than his or her home school.
