What is it about?
We aimed to develop a tool requiring minimal literacy to facilitate parent engagement in early intervention. We identified that a picture based tool would engage parents in conversation about routines to help providers understand the child's overall participation in daily activities. Parents and caregivers of children under 3 years of age told us what their children do on a typical day. We used their responses to identify the most frequently reported activities and matched those activities with photographs. A group of experts in early child development and assessment were asked to evaluate the photographs and corresponding activities which resulted in a set of 40 activities/photographs that are included in the Infant Toddler Activity Card Sort.
