Teacher candidates must understand which early interventions will be appropriate for young children with atypical development. Research shows that early interventions promote better outcomes and allow students with atypical development to catch up to their peers at a faster rate than later interventions.
With your mentor teacher, review the assessment data from students in your field experience classroom. Select 2-3 skills the students need to work on based on the information provided by the assessments.
In a 12-15 slide digital presentation for families, describe intervention strategies to help students work on the selected skills that can be implemented at home.
Include the following in your presentation:
- The importance of early intervention for healthy development.
- The importance of early intervention occurring across early childhood settings (e.g., school and home).
- Examples of 3-5 early interventions that can be used across different early childhood settings, and how they assist the child’s development.
- Descriptions of two additional professionals (besides the early childhood teacher) who can assist families with developmental interventions, and how families can access these professionals.
- How technology might be used to enhance any intervention strategies.
Include a title slide, reference slide, and speaker’s notes in your digital presentation.
Support your presentation with 3-5 scholarly resources.
