Infant Stimulation Curriculum. Revised Edition.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Herschel W. Nisonger Center.
Presented is the Infant Stimulation Curriculum (developed by the Developmentally Delayed Infant Outreach Project) for parents and teachers to use with children who are developmentally between birth and 36 months of age. Published in a card format at a sixth grade readability level, the curriculum includes introductory cards providing information on the purpose of the curriculum, ways to adapt the curriculum to handicapped children, and how to use the curriculum to identify a child's behavioral level and stimulate development through eight stages for each of the following areas: coordination, locomotion, cognition, receptive language, expressive language, and socialization. Provided is a chart on which to record the child's progress. Each area is covered by 44 to 72 cards, each of which specifies an observable behavior and suggests two or more activities to stimulate the target behavior. Examples of behaviors are ability to put a small can into a larger can (stage 5 of cognition), ability to pull a 1/2" x 3" peg out of a pegboard (stage 4 of coordination) and ability to dry own hands after washing (stage 8 of socialization).
