Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell has launched a new and innovative resource produced by Scope, for parents of children with a disability.
Scope’s One Day at a Time resource includes information about child development and ideas to help parents and early childhood professionals to match activities with each child’s developmental levels. It is designed to support the families of young children with a disability or developmental delay and will be available online at no cost to families.
“Research has shown us that children with disabilities learn best when their learning is incorporated into everyday activities and routines at home and in early childhood services,” Ms Lovell said. “One Day at a Time is designed to promote parental involvement in a child’s learning and reflects best practice in early childhood intervention, and I’m impressed with the effort and foresight that has gone into developing this resource.”
One Day at a Time is available here.
