Resource Manual: Handicapped Children Birth to Five. Part 2.
Leslie, Lin; And Others
The resource manual, in two parts, provides a compilation of methods for enhancing the development of handicapped children from birth to 5 years in the areas of motor, communication, cognition, self help, and social skills. The manual is intended to aid in (1) assessing and identifying target behaviors to be achieved, (2) identifying methods for teaching and stimulating behaviors, (3) identifying mehtods for the refinement of target behaviors, and (4) identifying steps to achieve target behaviors. Individual sheets include the criterion behavior (in developmental sequence), teaching methods, refinements, and carryovers to other skills. Separate sheets provide the same instructional information for prerequisite skills. Gross motor skills range from head control to walking a balance beam. Fourteen fine motor skills and associated prerequisite skills are presented in the same manner. Skills range from visual focusing to drawing. Behavioral objectives for communication range from responding to sound to understanding pronouns (for receptive language) and asking simple questions to using possessive pronouns (for expressive language). The 22 cognitive skills include responding to a new sound in the environment to sorting 10 objects into two sets when three sets are possible. The 26 self help activities vary from reaching for and holding a bottle to playing in one's own yard independently. The social skills include reacting to the disappearance of a familiar adult (first behavioral objective) to using appropriate manners in social interactions (last objective). Also included are lists of criterion and prerequisite behaviors for each area keyed to the manual. Individual record sheets are provided. (DB)
