Steps for NEW POCET™ - Infant and Toddler

STEP 1 - Identify Appropriate Sequence of Developmental Stages
Developmental Guidelines included in each program provide a scope and sequence of the developmental stages that occur during a child's first 18 months and also the stages and skills that emerge during a child's toddler months.

STEP 2 - Provide Support for Skill Development
Each program offers three suggested experiences or activities that help caregivers and teachers support and encourage a child's progress toward each new skill or behavior described in the Developmental Guidelines.

STEP 3 - Record Individual Progress
Developmental Checklist Folders provide an easy way to organize individualized data on each infant or toddler's progress. The Checklist Folder can be updated to record each child's progress, which can be shared regularly with parents.

STEP 4 - Use Data to Inform Care and Instruction
POCET™ Infant and Toddler provides Individual Care Plans for up to 10 infants, and Group Lesson Plans for toddlers. Caregivers and teachers can use information gathered in the Checklist Folders and previous plans to create individualized Care Plans and Lesson Plans.
