ELEMENTS OF AN EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAM

I have divided the activities into three age groups. The three age groups are: birth to eleven months, twelve to twenty-four months, and twenty-four to thirty-six months. The groups are then broken up into twelve months. In the end, you will have one activity sheet for each month. All of the activities will incorporate the following: turn-taking, speech stimulation, auditory awareness, and vocabulary enhancement. The activities provided are developmentally appropriate for all age groups.

It is recommended that the early interventionist read over the activities and explain to the family how they would be able to incorporate the four areas mentioned above in those particular activities for the month. You will also need to keep in mind that children develop at their own pace and that you may need to adapt or change the activity to meet that child's or family's needs. Remember, each child is their own individual.
