Tier 3 intensive interventions

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 creating systems to:

·       Develop a collaborative team and planning processes

·       Identify students for early intervention

·       Complete Formalised Function Based Assessments and intervention planning

·       Use data-based decision making to plan and monitor student progress

·       Develop the capacity of teachers

·       Include families as part of the planning process

·       Link interventions and planning to school-wide systems

·       Align interventions to individual student support plans

·       Gain access to support from school services and external agencies and support
