6. Inclusive principles in practice

6.1. Going further

In the case study, the Wave 1 interventions included: noticing, using large print, sitting at the front, a buddy system and more interactive teaching approaches. The Wave 2 interventions included thinking about how to pass on information about learners to other teachers, a collective effort to raise money for photocopying, and talking to Molly’s parents. The Wave 3 intervention involved a specialist teacher visiting the school to give advice and making sure Molly visited the doctor, so that she was known to people who could help her.
