Interventions To Promote Adaptive Behavior Skills: DEC Recommended Practices.
Horn, Eva M.
This paper lists practices recommended by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division for Early Childhood concerning the promotion of adaptive behavior skills in early intervention and early childhood special education programs for infants and young children with special needs and their families. An introductory section defines adaptive behavior in early childhood to include the components of self-care, community self-sufficiency, personal-social responsibility, and social adjustment. The paper presents a rationale for inclusion of adaptive behavior in early childhood/early intervention curriculum and discusses how the characteristics of adaptive behavior have direct implications for planning and implementing instruction. Nine recommended practices for adaptive behavior interventions are then listed. (JDD)
