WAVES OF INTERVENTION
Wave 1 (High-Quality Teaching First)
Universal Lesson Provision - a classroom teacher response to a student’s learning needs. This includes providing differentiated work and creating an inclusive learning environment. ILP (Individual Learning Program) is needed to measure the child’s ongoing progress.
Wave 2 (Additional Support e.g. Targeted work for the particular group)
Beyond Lesson Provision – Students in wave 2 are expected to catch up with their peers as a result of a specific class intervention. Therefore more support is needed & this could take the form of withdrawal in groups/individual or LSA/TA will work with them in the class.
Wave 3 (Specialist individualized intervention Support)
External Support Provision - This may involve external assessment from the educational psychologist and associated therapist and will require an IEP(Individualized Educational Program). Special educators support will be clearly visible for these students.
