General Curriculum and Intervention Strategies: DEC Recommended Practices.
Wolery, Mark; Sainato, Diane
This paper lists practices recommended by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division for Early Childhood, concerning general curriculum and intervention strategies in early intervention and early childhood special education (EI/ECSE) programs for infants and young children with special needs and their families. Definitions of "curriculum" and "intervention strategies" are provided; assumptions on which the indicators are based are noted; and division of the indicators into four subsets is discussed. Thirty-one indicators are then listed, within the following four subsets: (1) the broad outcomes that should occur from using appropriate curriculum and instructional strategies; (2) the issues teams should consider in developing and making selections about which strategies to use; (3) the issues teams should consider in making adjustments to the curricular strategies that are used; and (4) the types of strategies that are effective and should be a part of every early childhood educator's repertoire. Thirty-one recommended practices for curriculum and intervention strategies are listed. (Contains 11 references.) (JDD)
