The Tutorial Class is a short term behaviour intervention program that provides an alternative and structured environment offering intensive support for students with challenging behaviour.
Students in Years 5 – 10 are referred from local schools in the Broken Hill Far West region whose behaviours have significantly restricted their ability to access the academic and social curriculum of their mainstream home school.
The aim of the Tutorial Class is to increase referred students school engagement, social skills and school attendance and to reduce inappropriate behaviours that cause disruption in the mainstream classroom. This is achieved through an individualised approach aimed at building social skills, appropriate behaviour choices and self-regulation of behaviours in a supportive and structured environment.
Programs aim to reduce targeted, negative student behaviours and provide each student with ongoing opportunities to engage in effective communication, decision-making, self-monitoring and regulating of targeted behaviours.
