Behavioral Prescription Guide. Manual IIb: Motor. Parent/Child Home Stimulation 'The Marshalltown Project.'
Keiser, Arlene F.; And Others
Presented is the Marshalltown Behavioral Prescription Guide for motor development which consists of incremental behavioral objectives and strategies to aid parents in the prescriptive teaching of handicapped and culturally deprived infants and preschool children. The guide is intended for use prior to a weekly home visit resulting in a weekly prescription left in the home. The program is described as involving a 6 hour orientation course for parents to allow them to introduce the management procedures and chart the child's progress. It is hoped that parents will eventually be able to use the program materials directly. Each of the 117 profile items are presented individually in terms of profile number, behavioral definition, cue/s, measurement criteria, materials needed, and behavioral objectives and startegies. Sample prescription forms are also included. The following are examples of profile items: holds head erect and steady, sits without support, stands holding on, stands alone, inserts object in hole, walks backwards, scribbles imitatively, copies drawing of cross, ties knot, and roller skates. (For related information see EC 052 347, EC 052 348, and EC 052 350). (DB)
