The objectives of this study were to investigate types of supportive school services received and factors related to provision of these services. We conducted a cross-sectional study to describe the school experience of males with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies. Study subjects were identified through the Muscular Dystrophy Surveillance, Tracking, and Research Network. Non-ambulatory males with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) were significantly more likely to use an instructional assistant and resource room support when compared to ambulant males with DMD at the time of the caregiver interview. Males with DMD who received occupational therapy were more likely to use an instructional assistant, while those who received speech therapy were more likely to repeat a grade, use an instructional assistant, and receive resource room support. Males with DMD whose primary caregivers had less than 12 years of education were more likely to use an instructional assistant and resource room support. Non-ambulatory males with DMD should continue receiving appropriate school accommodations so they can keep pace with their physical demands. Males with DMD with speech deficits should be considered for various educational interventions.
