Students with learning difficulties and disorders are less likely to meet the same educational standards as their peers without purposeful intervention and ongoing support.

Despite the provision of high-quality teaching practices and the use of evidence-based literacy and numeracy programs and resources, there will be several students who will struggle to learn and progress at the same rate as their peers.  Not all of these children will have a learning disorder such as Dyslexia, however, all of these children are "at risk" of underachievement. 

Children who are not learning and responding to instruction at the same level as their peers need additional intervention to provide an oppourtunity to catch up.  These students may also benefit from additional classroom supports and adjustments, which will allow them to better engage in the curriculum and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding in the least restrictive manner, particularly while their literacy and numeracy skills are still developing.
