Checklists provide specific skills all children should be working on in preparation for going to kindergarten. For students with significant cognitive disabilities, these are skills that they may continue to work on through their school years. A blank chart is provided for other skills you see are lacking in a student that you want to work on.
These checklists are useful for identifying key skills for classroom intervention and IEP goals. They can also follow a student through the years, as teachers track progress and determine next steps for interventions.
Use the data collection sheets when working on a specific skill, especially when using discrete trials. Simple instructions for teaching with discrete trials are provided. This approach can simplify a skill to a very basic, single task to work on until mastery before moving onto another task. It is effective for students who are easily overwhelmed when presented with a more typical learning approach or who do not appear to be progressing.
