The Graduated Approach supports the Local Offer. It helps education settings meet the needs of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN). 

Intervention Guidance documents give examples of the three tiers of support which are:

Tier 1: Universal support

Tier 2: Early Support for SEND 

Tier 3: Continuing Support for SEND

These guidance documents show and the journey through these tiers using the Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycle.

The documents are split into examples for different special educational needs. For example, physical impairment, hearing impairment and communication impairment. The documents also give examples of how to evaluate and review progress.
