Outreach workers will review the form and make contact
An initial visit is made to the school or further discussion regarding training
For individual pupil support there is a maximum of 2 visits initially working alongside the pupil, TA and teacher in the classroom
A record of strategies will be provided for the school
Initially, each school will be allocated 2 referrals
