    The Catch 22 of targeted support

    Public discussion Created by CORE Education

    In the latest CORE blog, Lynne Silcock writes about the The Catch 22 of targeted support, where the best intentions were to target support where a student most needed it; however this also resulted in an unintended consequence - where the student felt different to their peers, as someone with "additional" learning needs. http://bit.ly/2xaqVTQ

    It's a tricky dilemma. Without targeted support, students might not have their learning needs addressed, so how can be best meet the needs of our diverse learners without falling into the trap of singling out or labelling students?

    How does (or might) this look in your classroom or school/kura?
