How do you come up with interventions for young children with disabilities?

Walk step by step through the jargon-free Carolina Curriculum

The Carolina Curriculum is an assessment and intervention program designed for use with young children from birth to five who have mild to severe disabilities. Professionals in home-, school-, or center-based environments will improve children’s outcomes by systematically using this easy-to-use, criterion-referenced system that clearly links assessment with intervention and lets them work closely with the child’s teachers, family members, and other service providers.

In each of the age-specific volumes, all the areas to be assessed are clearly laid out in logical sequences in an Assessment Log. Each item on the assessment tool is linked directly to a curriculum item that describes procedures for teaching the assessed skill. Assessment is linked to intervention through hierarchies of developmental tasks that are both relevant to typical routines and pertinent to long-term adaptation—thus integrating the intervention in a meaningful way into the child’s life.

Which areas does it examine?

CCITSN and CCPSN consist of logical teaching sequences covering five developmental domains:

  • communication
  • personal-social
  • fine motor
  • gross motor

What is a sample activity?

Curriculum items (intervention objectives) should be embedded in activities that challenge the child in two or more domains. An example of combining goals into one activity would be to teach a child to pull to standing (Item 22-Ie) by placing desirable toys out of reach on top of a support. The toys are ones that serve different functions such as a squeaky toy and a pull toy (Item 7j). The ring stacker also invites the child to remove the rings (Item 18q). Three objectives are addressed in this one activity.
