Tertiary Interventions

In a very small number of cases, where a combination of whole school and special needs group support strategies don’t quite go far enough for a student with challenging behaviour, specialist, individualised strategies are required.

For these at-risk students a case management approach is necessary, bringing together everyone in their wider support network to find the most appropriate ways to meet their needs. Case management involves a person-directed planning process and brings together student, school, family, medical advisors and other outside agencies in collaboration. It’s about working together to set behavioural goals, to identify the specialist support systems that will be necessary to achieve them, and determining how they will be accessed.

A happy student on the train

For students with especially challenging behaviour that is ongoing crisis plans are also necessary. These create security for both teachers and students by establishing, in advance, the strategies to be used for the management of extreme or unsafe behaviours.In extreme cases, schools may also need to look beyond the resources available to them to find alternative means of accessing the support and behavioural management systems a student needs.
