Facilitating Infant/Toddler Skills in Family-Child Routines.
Stremel, Kathleen; And Others
This paper on facilitating skill development of infants and toddlers with disabilities within family-child routines focuses on: (1) developing a routine analysis by incorporating multiple Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) objectives into family-selected routines; (2) utilizing systematic family training procedures to integrate targeted skills into routines; and (3) determining generalization of parent skills. The routine analysis requires conducting multidisciplinary and multipurpose assessments of the child, determining high-preference and low-preference routines and social interactions within the family, determining which specific IFSP objectives can best be incorporated into the targeted routine, determining the level of caregiver skills, and developing a routine sequence. Family training procedures then call for an intervention team member to conduct the routine with the child and another team member to videotape the routine, and having the family caregivers observe the routine and later review the videotape, conduct the intervention at the next visit, and receive feedback. Generalization of parent skills is exhibited when the parent incorporates objectives from old routines into a new routine. (JDD)
