The IEP shall include a statement of the supplementary aids and services, based on peer-reviewed research to the extent practicable, to be provided to the child, or on behalf of the child.  (34 C.F.R. § 300.320(a)(4))

The supplementary aids and services must be based on peer-reviewed research to the extent practicable.  (34 C.F.R. § 300.320(a)(4))

The phrase ‘to the extent practicable,’ as used in this context, generally means that services and supports should be based on peer-reviewed research to the extent that it is possible, given the availability of peer-reviewed research.  (71 Fed. Reg. 46665 (August 14, 2006))

In Albuquerque Public Schools, school personnel shall select and use methods that research has shown to be effective, to the extent that methods based on peer-reviewed research are available  However, IEP Teams shall not be required to include a focused discussion on research-based methods.  (71 Fed.
