DL Remedial Intervention Program 101:
Everything you need to know (and more)!"
What is Remedial Intervention?
Remedial intervention is a form of educational intervention that is designed
to help individuals who are struggling to cope with academics and/or adapting to a
learning environment. The goal of remedial intervention is to provide targeted support
to individuals who are performing below grade level or who are experiencing other
difficulties that are affecting their learning.
It is often used to help students who are struggling with reading, writing, math, or
other academic skills, as well as those who are dealing with behavioural or emotional
challenges that are impacting their ability to learn.
Why early intervention?
When the problem or the root cause of the problem is identified in the early
years of education, it can help plan a better academic approach for the learner. It may
also help the parents & the learners accept and cope. Every subject is cumulative and
summative.To elaborate, if the child hasn't been able to do addition, by the time the
teacher starts multiplication, the child is confused and unable to perform. Similarly,
for spellings, if the child hasn't had a chance to grasp word families, then forming
spellings with roots & suffixes is going to be extremely challenging.
In a way, Early Intervention focuses on laying the foundations of education, hence it has
been proven to be an effective way to reduce the scope of the academic gaps, if any.
What are Academic Gaps?
The academic gap simply means the disparity between the grade levels in the
current performance level and the desired (grade level) performance level. The DL
remedial intervention program bridges these gaps through the multisensory approach. To
avoid the gaps from widening, early identification and intervention are recommended.
What happens in a blended session?
In this interactive online session, individual attention is given to every
learner to ensure maximum student participation and effective grasping of concepts. By
blending exciting games and personalised activities, students also learn to implement
the concepts in relevant areas.
What are Live Worksheets, and
how do they work?
Technology meets academic expertise in these vibrant, exciting live
worksheets, which the students love. The Live Worksheets are assigned during the
sessions where the learner and enabler have real-time access or through the VAKT mobile
application. The Live Worksheets are self- directive, allowing the learners to correct
themselves and reattempt the activities till they gain confidence and proficiency.
How does Brain Gym improve
Focused Brain Gym drills involving simple, repetitive physical exercises are
modelled by the enablers, and the learners follow suit. These fun exercises, usually
done in groups, aim at developing children's concentration, memory and various cognitive
functions alongside becoming physically active and agile.
Parent-Teacher Meetings and
Child Journal is a powerful tool that helps educators understand and note
down observations about their students progress with their PLP. Points that are
discussed during the parent teacher meeting is noted by our enablers to enhance the
learning experience for every individual who is a part of our intervention program.
But that's not all! Our platform also includes a Parent-Teacher Meeting questionnaire
and reminder system to help parents and educators stay organized and gather valuable
feedback from parents. These questions focus on your student's academic and behavioural
improvements, giving you a comprehensive view of their progress.
PLP - Personalized Learning Plan
Every learner is assigned a Personalized Learning Plan based on their level
that is determined after screening. The PLP is designed based on the Enablers inputs.
The Child’s progress is tracked through every independent module. The Plan is adjusted
based on the child’s learning and parental guidance. Each small step is designed as a
part of the wider learning objective that enable our learners to concentrate on
mastering skills regardless of the time, location, or their individual learning pace.
Progress tracking and monitoring
We use half-yearly review mechanism to monitor progress. Progress monitoring
provides continuous data to guide ongoing instructions for students and provides
information to monitor progress on PLP goals as appropriate. The data collected is used
to set goals, make instructional decisions, and plan programs for individual students
with intensive needs. By monitoring the data our enablers generate personalised content,
assign specific goals, and provide customisable feedback by assessing students'
progress, allowing students to build on their strengths, address their weaknesses, and
pursue their interests.
What are graded assessments?
To ensure that the Personalised Learning Plans continue to meet the
student's learning needs, graded or levelled assessments are conducted to track the
learner’s progress in the course of intervention, thereby giving objective information
on the strengths to enhance continually and the areas to improve. This kind of growth
mindset help in making the learner's efforts better planned and more effective.
What are the types of
The graded or levelled assessments are conducted periodically to understand
the learner's progress in key learning areas, including reading, comprehension, writing
and spelling. The student's learning curve is tracked through in-house tools that map
the reading fluency, level of reading and listening comprehension (reading & listening),
and spelling accuracy and writing skills.
How are Graded Assessments beneficial
for the parents
Regular graded or levelled assessments give a clear picture of the strengths
and focus points of the learner, which help all the stakeholders in the learning journey
- the child, parents, and enabler, to support the learner effectively with the best
intention and information. The objectives of these tests are clearly defined, enabling
them to evaluate and map the level and intensity of intervention required by the
How does our content help struggling learners?
Our remedial content aims to provide a seamless online intervention (1-on-1
and Group) for bridging academic gaps along with strengthening the learning processes.
It also promotes independent learning by providing direct instructional support and
personalized learning strategies.
What are the 5 Levels of our content?
Our content is organized into five levels, starting with the Fundamental
level (U.K.G - Grade 2), followed by Basic (G3 - G5), Intermediate (G6 - G8),
Proficiency (G8 - G10), and Advanced (G11 - G12). These levels cater to different age
groups, ranging from between 4-8 years for the Fundamental level, 8-10 years for Basic,
10-12 years for Intermediate, 12-14 years for Proficiency, and 14 years and above for
What are some of the teaching strategies that we inculcate
through our content?
The remedial instruction provided by us incorporates multi-sensorial learning aspects,
focusing on Foundational Literacy and Numeracy. The curriculum guidelines provided by
the National Curriculum Framework are followed, and the content is validated through
Bloom's Taxonomy. The DLearners Portal offers skill development in early reading,
vocabulary building, print awareness, comprehension, and independence in written
expression. Bloom's Taxonomy is used to classify educational learning objectives into
levels of complexity and specificity.
How do we map the child's learning growth?
We create Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs) based on the learner's
strengths and abilities, with SMART goals that are periodically evaluated. Our
intervention sessions are self-measurable for continuous monitoring of concept
internalization. We also use in-house graded tools covering targeted learning aspects,
including reading, spelling, comprehension, free writing, and math, to measure and
monitor progress through error analysis and rubrics.
