SELF (Supports for Early Learning Foundations): A Non-Directed Model Demonstration Project. Final Report.
This final report describes achievements and activities of Project SELF (Supports for Early Learning Foundations), a federally funded project in New Mexico which developed, evaluated, and replicated an innovative model that provides strategies for early interventionists and families to support early learning foundations. The project identified local and national needs; developed, implemented and evaluated a pilot Self Observation Process; and developed a curriculum for supporting children's self-regulation adaptive strategies. Project SELF developed a model of regulation that consists of five domains of regulation: neurophysiological, behavioral, emotional, social-communicative, and environmental. The SELF Assessment-Intervention process includes a family interview, an observational assessment tool, and a strategies menu for each daily routine of concern. The project disseminated information to over 400 people through workshops, conference presentations, and preservice lectures. It also developed a self-contained training package that includes a training manual, accompanying CD-ROM, assessment-intervention protocols, and a family participation guide. Individual sections of the report address the project's goals and objectives, theoretical framework, participants, methodological problems, evaluation findings, impact, and future activities. Six extensive appendices detail project development, dissemination and training activities, and provide project forms. (Contains 12 pages of references.) (DB)
