Teaching Developmentally Delayed Children: Methods

Developmental Delays
Children generally catch up to the developmental milestones they initially missed when they have these delays. Some children are only delayed in one area while others experience multiple delays.
Developmental Disabilities
A disadvantage that children will have for life, measured against certain developmental milestones. Examples include cerebral palsy and autism.
Social Delay
This type of delay is characterized by difficulties with relational skills. Specifically, children with this kind of delay are considered to be below two standard deviations from the mean in this area.
Cognitive Delay
Children with this kind of delay may be learning below their grade level. They may also have trouble memorizing facts or developing skills in reasoning.
Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT)
Teachers who use this method of instruction will pay attention to the unique cultural experiences and backgrounds of their students.
