This paper explores the facilitation of students who need support during the school hours and explores how this process might impact on overall inclusion of additional educational support needs (AESN) in a school. The main aim of this study is to find out effective teaching strategies of main stream teachers to teach AESN students through implementation of student support program. The rationale for this study is searching good strategies as the common perception of teachers is that AESN students cannot learn in inclusive setup through implementation of student support program. This is a qualitative study that was conducted in a school in Qatar. This is a case study of Student Support Program (SSP) implementation involving Classroom observations, senior management team (SMT) meeting and parents meeting as tools to collect the key information. The findings of the study show that SSP is an essential and significant program for AESN students at the observer’s school. For implementation of SSP program, the Student Support Team used one-to-one teaching strategies, structured teaching, Visual Learning strategies, Differentiated Teaching strategy and adaptive teaching strategies. The findings of this study could possibly motivate mainstream teachers in inclusive education in Qatar to teach AESN students.
