  • Allowing more consistency, support for a variety of staff
  • Modelling behaviour management strategies in real situations
  • Speed of reports becoming available
  • Links with other agencies and tier 4 provision

  • More frequent visits

(currently working alongside Tier 4 & looking at Tiers within 3)

  • Where to go from here

  • Attend on different days/times

(flexibility always attempted where possible)

  • Greater links with parents

(often identified as a strong point in most cases)
