Study Notes

Individual Support Plan (ISP)

  • An action plan designed to address the support needs of a learner experiencing barriers to learning.
  • Aims to minimize or eliminate barriers, enabling the learner to perform at their best.

Characteristics of an ISP

  • Must be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-framed.
  • Developed through a collaborative and trans-disciplinary approach involving the class teacher, learner support coordinator, and parents/caregivers.

Types of ISP

  • Designed to address educational/learning barriers (e.g., language difficulties, numeracy difficulties).
  • Designed to address psycho-social barriers (e.g., poverty, child abuse, drug abuse, bullying).

Planning an ISP

  • Involves a planning sequence to facilitate optimum learning outcomes.
  • No one-size-fits-all approach; each ISP is unique to the learner.

Planning Sequence of an ISP

  • Step 1: Understand the learner through building a relationship and gathering information from parents and former teachers.
  • Step 2: Set goals that are long-term, social, academic, and skills-based, focusing on the learner's strengths.
  • Step 3: Develop a plan that addresses goals, is age-appropriate, and adopts a holistic approach.
  • Step 4: Implement the plan, focusing on repetition, learner understanding, and building self-esteem.

Guarding Principles for ISP

  • Recognize that what works for one learner may not work for another.
  • Involve parents as primary educators in the process.
  • Support the family in raising a child with learning difficulties.

Intervention Principles for an ISP

  • Motivation: promote engagement in the learning process.
  • Social Value: focus on promoting appropriate behavior.
  • Structuring: provide a predictable, structured environment.

Reviewing the ISP

  • Review progress, making comments on the learner's performance.
  • Interventions will continue to be reviewed and adjusted as needed.
  • Recognize and accept individual differences in development, culture, home environment, and learning style.
