Involvement Define “involved” “It is the opportunity provided for their physical and mental development. Through activities, techniques, and strategies, the child can develop, improve, or acquire skills and abilities.” (Es la oportunidad que se le brinda para su desarrollo físico y mental. A través de actividades, técnicas y estrategias, el niño puede desarrollar, incrementar ó adquirir habilidades y destrezas.) “What he does alone and with help.” (Que es lo que el hace solo y con ayuda.) “For a child to be involved in an activity, … they also need to be able to do things on their own.” Describe how you selected “how involved” your child is in an activity “Response [for Celebrations at Home] is based on how often my child has a sensory meltdown and refuses to participate during these celebrations.” “She is not involved because she doesn’t know how to do it herself if alone.” (No está involucrado porque no sabe valerse por si sola.)
