Interventions at Ysgol Bryn Collen
Interventions help classroom teachers identify the early signs of learning disabilities, but that is not their only or primary use. Today, instructional and behavioural interventions are used to identify and remove obstacles that hinder a pupil's academic progress.
Some examples of useful interventions include building relationships, adapting the environment, managing sensory stimulation, changing communication strategies, providing prompts and cues, using a teach, review, and reteach process, and developing social skills.
Dependent upon each individual child's needs and alongside interventions happening within the classroom through excellent differentiation, we are able to offer the following interventions at Ysgol Bryn Collen:
