All students with disabilities who require special education teacher support services (SETSS) have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). The IEP contains information about your child’s interests, strengths, needs, goals, and educational program. It is a legal document that describes how the DOE will provide your child:

  • A Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)

  • In the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).

Kids in Preschool


  • 5 years old and up

Direct SETSS

A special education teacher provides specially designed instruction part-time to a group of up to eight children. This may be in the general education classroom or somewhere else in the school.

Indirect SETSS

A special education teacher works with the general education classroom teacher to:

  • Modify instruction to meet students’ needs
