3. Design learning experiences that are meaningful to the child

What to do

Things to consider

  • Are activities designed around what the child likes rather than something you want the child to do?
  • Is the child positioned in a manner that is both functional and comfortable?
  • Does the environment facilitate the child's use of residual vision and hearing?
  • Are you using the child's most alert times to engage in activities?
  • Are the cues you are using specific to and appropriate for the child?
  • Are all team members using the child's preferred communication and learning method(s)?
  • Are you promoting active participation?
  • Are you balancing the physical load with the cognitive load?
