A Curriculum Program for Infants Six to Twelve Months.
Dickinson, Barbara Gibello
This curriculum program was developed to serve as a guide or reference for those professionals wishing to implement or improve upon a current participation program for parents of 6- to 12-month-old infants. The curriculum program covers such topics as the importance of early stimulation, infants' gross and fine motor development, social/emotional development, and language development. Following a brief introductory overview of the curriculum's objectives and content, Section I provides a "timeplan" for presenting the curriculum material. The "timeplan" is based around a 60-minute session, meeting one time per week, over a period of 10 weeks. However, this "timeplan" can be adapted to suit those presenting the program. Each session includes the session's objectives, materials needed, topics to be discussed, suggested activities, book reviews, and how to close the session. Lecture materials intended for use by the professional, as well as handouts to be distributed to the parents each week are provided for each curriculum topic in Sections II through IX. Additional materials, such as a list of songs and jingles, good books for babies, a reading list for parents, and supplementary lessons in nutrition and childproofing the infant's environment, are included in the appendices.
