Tertiary supports are the intensive programs and strategies provided to students who require individualized supports in addition to universal and secondary supports. The purpose of tertiary supports is to reduce the severity of academic or behavior problems.
The tertiary support system creates the final layer of a multi-tiered, schoolwide model. Programs and strategies that make up the tertiary supports can be described as intensive programs that are highly individualized around a student's specific needs.
