Some students may need additional support and instruction for their learning. Targeted interventions, support and instruction build upon what has been taught to students at the universal level. The focus of Tier 2 is on staff intervening early to support their students.
Tier 2 provides additional support, instruction and feedback that will help students to effectively engage in learning. To achieve this the school establishes a process so that targeted supports are available to quickly respond to student need.
Key features include:
increasing structure and predictability
increasing opportunities for feedback
monitoring the progress of students
linking academic and behavioural performance
increasing communication between home and school
collecting and using of data for decision making
simple function-based support for all teachers to use.
