Using Implementation Checklists to Reinforce the Use of Child-Focused Intervention Strategies
Dinnebeil, Laurie; Spino, Margie; McInerney, William
Young Exceptional Children, v14 n2 p22-31 Jun 2011
The purpose of this article is to illustrate how itinerant specialists (service providers who provide special education or related services in community-based early childhood settings) can support the implementation of child-focused intervention strategies by classroom teachers, parents, and caregivers between itinerant visits. Implementation checklists provide step-by-step instruction to users and, when paired with peer coaching opportunities, can provide a valuable support to parents, general education teachers, and caregivers. A detailed case scenario illustrates how itinerant specialists can use implementation checklists in an inclusive early childhood setting. In this article, the authors describe the development and use of implementation checklists that break down intervention strategies into discrete, sequential steps that are easy for adults to follow and use in the itinerant specialist's absence.
