Educators and parents may want to use this check list to organize
and track the learning progress of each individual. Each activity
on our web site is designed to offer instruction, practice and feedback
in developing one or more of the skills listed below. This list
of activities will expand as our site grows.
We are developing our activities and learning games based on standards
of effective instruction supported by research. These include task
analysis (breaking new skills down into very small steps
that can be taught individually), direct instruction
(showing how to do each new skill and providing a great deal
of guided and independent practice with different examples), and
programming for generalization (being
able to repeat the skill in different settings).
Please note, these skills are best learned when first practiced
in isolation, and then practiced in situations as much like the
real world as possible.
