Tier 3 intensive interventions

A few students may need more intensive support and instruction. These are most effective when the school also has universal and targeted support systems in place. The focus of Tier 3 is on staff intervening early to support their students. Tier 3 interventions are built upon the foundations of strong universal support.

Key features include:

  • team based functional behavioural assessment
  • linking academic and behavioural performance
  • personalised interventions that focus on prevention
  • intensive instruction and support to reduce the frequency of behaviour
  • strategies for enhancing specific feedback
  • the effective use of consequences
  • use of data for decision making.
