When thinking about interventions, it is important to understand what the problem is and what the choices are.
It is important to understand what the underlying problem is before starting an intervention. For example, a student may be handing in work with lots of spelling mistakes because they do not proof-read their work, or because they are dyslexic. The right intervention will depend on the reason for the problem.
It is important to consider how important the problem is and what intervention options there are.
BEWARE of jumping to conclusions about the reason for a problem.
REMEMBER to always consider different options for intervention
