    1. Functional Learning Objectives for Young Children with Special Needs

    2. Material taken from Project Open House, Drs Dinnebeil and McInerney

    3. Material taken from Project Open House, Drs Dinnebeil and McInerney Find the Functional objective (s): 5 year old Robin will string 5, 1-inch beads on a string by herself. 4 year old Traci will verbally respond to another child who asks her a question. 5 year old Justin will follow 2-step directions provided by a familiar adult. 3 year-old Rannon will stack 6 blocks on top of each other by himself.

    4. Material taken from Project Open House, Drs Dinnebeil and McInerney Is That Your Final Answer? If you think that objectives 2 and 3 are functional, youre right! Responding to another person who asks a question is an important skill that will help Traci interact with her peers and be part of the group. Following multi-part directions is an important skill for Justin to learn because hes going to need to do that when he goes to kindergarten.

    5. Material taken from Project Open House, Drs Dinnebeil and McInerney What About Stringing Beads and Stacking Blocks? Lets talk about Robins and Rannons objectives. Can Robin be successful in preschool or kindergarten if she cant string beads? Will Rannon get along OK if he cant stack blocks? Probably yes. By themselves, string beads or stacking blocks dont lead to other important skills or behaviors.

    6. Material taken from Project Open House, Drs Dinnebeil and McInerney What are the skills behind stringing beads or stacking blocks? However, stringing beads or stacking blocks depends on the ability to use two hands to accomplish a task or to have good fine-motor control. These are important skills that allow children to be successful in other settings. How could you rewrite objectives for Robin or Rannon so that they are functional?

    7. Material taken from Project Open House, Drs Dinnebeil and McInerney How about this??? Instead of stringing beads Robin will use both of her hands to complete a task Such as? Instead of stacking block Rannon will ?
