Stoneburner, Robert L.; Dowdy, Lynne R.
The booklet presents developmental and basic skills learning activities for parents to use at home with their handicapped preschool children to better prepare the children for school related experiences. Under each activity are provided a statement of what the activity seeks to accomplish, a list of materials necessary for the activity, suggested methods to be used in carrying out the activity, and suggested ways in which the activity can be enriched and extended. The section on basic concept development activities focuses on such aspects as color, naming body parts, identifying common objects, grouping by size and shape, position in space, and weight. Among the language development activities presented are those which stress following directions, developing good listening, rhyming words, and asking and answering questions. Motor skill development activities focus on such things as drawing basic shapes, tracing patterns, developing small and large muscle coordination, developing eye-hand coordination, developing body balance, and developing tactile awareness. Social skill development activities presented are geared toward such areas as role playing, toileting, dressing, eating, using the telephone, and socializing. (DLS)
