The second half of the course addresses: a) service delivery options for infants and toddlers, b) selection of age-appropriate materials and equipment, c) curriculum development and implementation in the areas of self-help, motor, cognitive, social/emotional, and language, and d) IFSP development, implementation and monitoring.
