PTT identifies and recognises the individual needs of each pupil. Interventions, strategies and support are put in place to reduce anxiety and promote independence.

In PTT a programme of sensitive but persistent interventions, strategies and support is put in place to engage the individual pupil yet minimise regression and discover and develop potential. In this respect it is important that expectations are high but realistic based on careful assessment. This will include the strengths and individual needs of a person, their level of functioning and an assessment of the support they will need.
