A measure of engagement for children with intellectual disabilities in early childhood settings: a preliminary study

Kishida, Y., Kemp, C.,

Academic Literature

2006

This article seeks to develop a measure of engagement that could be used in practice with children with disabilities, including children with severe intellectual disabilities. The Individual Child Engagement Record (ICER) was designed to observe and record the engagement of individual children in order to identify optimal programs for them. Using the measure, 5 children with mild to severe disabilities were observed in an inclusive childcare setting across 4 types of ongoing activities. The measure allowed for the identification of activities that would provide better learning opportunities for children with disabilities.
