Summary:

The Developmental Therapy-Developmental Teaching curriculum provides a framework for guiding social-emotional development and responsible behavior in children and adolescents. It matches a child's current social, emotional, and behavioral status with specific goals, objectives, behavior management strategies, curriculum materials, activities, and evaluation procedures. It also defines specific adult roles which facilitate a child's development. The curriculum sequentially spans social, emotional, and behavioral development for children and youth from birth to 16 years. The curriculum has four areas: Behavior, Communication, Socialization, and (Pre)Academics/Cognition. Within each of these four areas specific teaching objectives follow developmental sequences for social-emotional competence and responsible behavior. These sequences suggest five distinct stages in the psychosocial development of all children and youth and define both the long- and short-term program goals for each student. Detailed curriculum activities, environments, and intervention strategies are provided with specific adaptations for early childhood, school-age children, preadolescents, and adolescents. The curriculum also describes the types of strategies used by adults and the necessary adult role models needed by children and youth at these various stages of development. Appendices include sample evaluation instruments. (Contains approximately 250 references.)
