School-Aged Interventions and Supports

The first step in improving learner success in the classroom is acknowledging that no two learners are alike. Offering information and instruction in a variety of ways enhances the experience for all students.

When interventions begin early independence and access to their environment increases. Gaining a better understanding of the child’s strengths and challenges, understanding how the child accesses their environment,  what a child sees and how a child functions allows for planning to match the best methods or interventions and supports to how that child learns.

In addition to services at your local school district, there also may be services available in your community to help support children. For example, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) ensures that all children with disabilities have access to the services they need to get a good education.
