Summary and Wrap Up

Let’s review what you have learned in Module 1 about how to help a child with disabilities participate fully in daily routines and activities in inclusive settings. 

  • In Step 1 you read about a practice dilemma involving Luke, his family, his teacher, Jackie, and other professionals. 
  • In Step 2 you turned this practice dilemma into an answerable question, with a focus on finding out whether practices called embedded interventions would promote Luke’s participation at home and at school. 
  • In Step 3 you considered key sources of general evidence about embedded interventions, including the best available research evidence about the effectiveness of embedded interventions, policies and professional guidelines, and families’ experience-based knowledge about embedded interventions.
  • In Step 4 you integrated these sources of evidence with the perspectives of Luke’s family and professionals to make an informed practice decision, and designed an activity matrix for implementing your decision.
  • Finally, in Step 5, you considered ways to evaluate the plan for promoting Luke’s participation.
