Adaptive/Self Help

Browse our selection of tools to address children suffering from adaptive or self-help delays. Adaptive delays refer to a lag in the milestones necessary to cope with the demands of a child’s natural environment. We provide resources for parents, teachers, and caregivers working to help children who have trouble adopting these self-help skills. Achieving milestones in adaptive skills can help children maneuver through everyday requirements that seem formidable to them at first, no matter how much others may take them for granted. Sample topics include skills development, visual-motor integration, and interpretation of cues for higher-level social interaction. Children need these adaptive and self-help skills for every aspect of functioning independently, including feeding, dressing, toileting, and playground activities.
