Charlotte Circle Intervention Guide for Parent-Child Interactions.
Calhoun, Mary Lynne; And Others
Intended for use by practitioners working with children with substantial disabilities and their families, this manual presents a theoretical perspective and specific curriculum goals and strategies based on social reciprocity theory. Part 1 reviews the research and identifies key behaviors and related curriculum goals that strengthen social reciprocity. Evaluation data from the Charlotte Circle model demonstration project in North Carolina are reported. Part 2 offers curriculum goals and strategies for strengthening social reciprocity in the following areas: increasing smiling; having fun together through play; imitation; early communication; relaxation; and managing and comforting crying. Each curriculum section covers: the value of the goal, sample outcomes from an individualized family service plan (IFSP), a theoretical perspective, an early interventionist's guide, data collection strategies, and parent handouts. Part 3 discusses the contexts in which these interventions can be implemented--in the community, in school, and in therapy sessions. There are many reproducible pages in both English and Spanish. Appendixes include lists of possible reinforcers and a parent letter. Includes 155 references. (DB)
