Glossary - Key terms used in Standards and Components. The references and resources in addition to being the source(s) for that definition may also provide additional background information specific to the use of that term in Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education.

Glossary

Term Definition Reference/Resource
Authentic assessment “… the systematic recording of developmental observations over time about the naturally occurring behaviors and functional competencies of young children in daily routines by familiar and knowledgeable caregivers in the child’s life” (p. 29). Bagnato, S. J., & Yeh-Ho, H. (2006). High-stakes testing with preschool children: Violation of professional standards for evidence-based practice in early childhood intervention. International Journal of Educational Policy, 3(1), 2343.
Child-initiated routines and activities Routines and activities that children initiate themselves, as opposed to routines and activities that are initiated and directed by adults. Schweinhart, L. (2016). Child initiated learning. In D. Couchenour & J. Chrisman (Eds.), The sage encyclopedia of contemporary early childhood education (pp. 231233). Thousand Oaks, CA: SAGE Publications, Inc. doi: 10.4135/9781483340333.n61
Culturally and linguistically responsive and affirming Approaches that empower individuals intellectually, socially, emotionally, and politically by using cultural and historical referents to convey knowledge, to impart skills, and to change attitudes.

Such approaches involve consciously creating social interactions to help individuals meet the criteria of academic success, cultural competence, and critical consciousness and include creating individual-centered learning environments that affirm cultural identities; foster positive learning outcomes; develop children’s abilities to connect across lines of difference; elevate historically marginalized voices; empower children as agents of social change; and contribute to individual child engagement, learning, growth, and achievement through the cultivation of critical thinking.  These approaches challenge norms (e.g., expectations regarding language, behavior, social interactions) in order to be responsive to marginalized children and families and work towards greater equity.

Developmentally appropriate practice An approach to intervention and instruction whereby an early childhood professional bases decisions about children’s developmental and learning goals and experiences on (a) knowledge of child development and learning in order to determine experiences likely to promote positive outcomes, (b) knowledge of each child’s individual abilities and characteristics to adapt and be responsive for each child, and (c) knowledge of children’s social, linguistic, and cultural contexts to ensure that learning experiences are relevant and respectful for each child and family. https://www.naeyc.org/resources/topics/dap-introduction
DEC Recommended Practices (RPs) A set of practices based on the best available empirical evidence as well as the wisdom and experience of the field and that were developed to guide EI/ECSE professionals and families about the most effective ways to improve the learning outcomes and promote the development of young children, birth through five years of age, who have or are at-risk for developmental delays or disabilities in eight topic areas:
  • Leadership,
  • Assessment,
  • Environment,
  • Family,
  • Instruction,
  • Interaction,
  • Teaming and collaboration, and
  • Transition

Evidence-based practice Used as a Noun - Practices that are based on the best available empirical research that documents the practice’s efficacy with young children and families; the wisdom and knowledge of the field; and the core guiding values, beliefs, and theoretical approaches of EI/ECSE.

Used as a Verb – The process for selecting and implementing practices that weigh research evidence; family and professional wisdom and values; and the individual characteristics, strengths, and needs of a child.

Family A child’s consistent (i.e., primary) caregiver(s) who have responsibility for the child’s well-being and development and who are partners in the child’s education and intervention. This may include a variety of individuals, including, but not limited to, the child’s biological, adoptive, or foster parent(s), legal guardians, siblings, grandparents, other relatives, and others within the child’s primary support network.

Family capacity-building practices Participatory opportunities and experiences afforded to families to strengthen existing parenting knowledge and skills, and promote the development of new parenting abilities that enhance parenting self-efficacy beliefs and practices and are guided by families’ individual strengths and needs; priorities, goals, and preferences; and cultural and linguistic characteristics. Division for Early Childhood. (2014). DEC recommended practices in early intervention/early childhood special education 2014. Retrieved from https://www.decsped.org/recommendedpractices
Functional behavior assessment Collection of data to investigate the environmental variables maintaining and/or contributing to challenging behavior. A functional assessment includes systematically identifying the challenging behavior, events that precede such behavior (antecedents), and events that maintain such behavior (consequences) with results used to identify, plan, implement, and support others to implement individual behavior support plans. Dunlap, G., & Fox, L. (2011). Function-based interventions for children with challenging behavior. Journal of Early Intervention, 33(4), 333-343.
High Leverage Practices (HLPs) Practices that are based on best-available research evidence and field consensus, reflect practices that are frequently used in the classroom, and considered critical for special educators, kindergarten through twelfth grade, because of their high potential to improve student outcomes, and which can be taught in teacher preparation programs.

Instruction A set of practices that are evidence-based, intentional, systematic, and support development and learning for all young children across developmental and content domains. Instruction includes the intentional structuring of children’s environments and learning experiences as well as methods used to teach a curriculum. Instruction is used across natural environments and inclusive settings in collaboration with families and other professionals. Wolery, M. (2012). Voices from the field.

Play A distinct developmental domain characterized by activities with objects and people that capture a child’s attention and interest as they experiment, try new ideas and roles, investigate laws of nature, and represent what they know about and are learning from ongoing events.   As a context for learning, play skills can be operationalized, predicted, and a focus of intervention and instruction with children’s learning goals embedded in indoor and outdoor play activities.

Strength-based Approaches that concentrate on the inherent strengths of children and their families. It is a philosophy and a way of viewing children and their families as resourceful, resilient, and self-determined. Green, B. L., McAllister, C. L., & Tarte, J. M. (2004).
