Join the Infant Development Association and the Desired Results Access Project as we explore how to develop adaptations for infants and toddlers’ everyday routines and activities. Learn about CARA’s Kit for Infants and Toddlers, a tool to help early intervention providers expand their knowledge and everyday use of adaptions for young children.

Learn how to observe and identify what is working and not working within daily routines and activities, engage caregivers in designing interventions, as well as how to implement specific adaptations to help children succeed. Attendees will be introduced to and gain confidence in using adaptations during both tele-intervention or in-person visits.

Register now to learn how to support children’s access to, and participation in, activities including caregiving routines, mealtimes, family chores, community events, and indoor and outdoor play.

Day 1 (90 minutes)

  • Gain an overview of adaptations for young children and the use of CARA’s Kit for Infants and Toddlers philosophy and process
  • Explore the difference between using adaptations alone v.s. a combination of child-directed, hands-on intervention strategies
  • Learn about a variety of adaptations and how to use each strategy alone and together
  • Focus on adapting everyday routines in home and child care settings

Day 2 (90 minutes)

  • Discuss how to implement specific adaptations in short case studies via breakout rooms
  • Brainstorm alongside other professionals: What would you do? What resources would you need?
  • Share ideas back with the whole group

Participants will:

  • Learn how adaptations promote access and participation in daily activities and routines
  • Learn the process for identifying and developing adaptations
  • Identify the materials needed to create adaptation
  • Gain many ideas of what adaptations will assist with specific routines and activities
