These pages were given to me by our former Early intervention provider, Kids On The Move .

Each task is designed to be repeated 10 times per session. You may want to start with fewer repetitions initially. Each task is broken down into 'steps.' Start each step at the level you feel is appropriate for your child. If it is too difficult, move to an earlier step. If it is too easy, move to a later step. Move to a new step after three consecutive sessions/days where the child performs the task with 80% accuracy.

Work Plan Chart You can print this chart off and use it to plan daily or weekly lessons.

Data Chart Print off this chart to keep track of the responses your child gives. By keeping data you will know exactly what your child knows and when it is time to move on to the next step. You can also use data to help you figure out why and when a student gets stuck--and use that information to adjust your teaching methods.
