Interventions To Promote Motor Skills: DEC Recommended Practices.
Fewell, Rebecca F.
This paper lists practices recommended by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division for Early Childhood concerning the promotion of motor skills in early intervention and early childhood special education programs for infants and young children with special needs and their families. An introductory section examines the importance of motor development as a component of early intervention programs. This section also discusses the child's use of sensory information in conjunction with movement, the incorporation of facilitation of quality movements into all daily routines, motor movements associated with materials or equipment, the importance of needs assessment, and the importance of considering family preferences. Thirteen recommended practices to promote motor skills are then listed. (JDD)
