In most cases the needs of our children can be met across the curriculum by carefully planned differentiation by the teacher. This is called quality first teaching.
However for some children the difficulties they have in school with their learning or friendships may require very specific teaching. This is known as an intervention. This may mean they need specific equipment to access the curriculum e.g. adapted keyboards due to a physical disability; vocabulary builders for children with a speech and language disorder; structured play therapy for children with social, emotional and mental health issues; tailored programmes for cognition and learning difficulties.
In these cases a personal plan is drawn up and your child is likely to be included on the Special Educational Need and Disability (SEND) register. If your child has a plan their teacher will discuss this with you and monitor their progress closely with the SENCO. An example is included below for your information.
