The next step is to set some task goals
Task goals describes the task - what the child should be able to do - and states how well the task should be performed. Stating exactly how well the child should be able to perform a task (called task parameters) makes it easier to monitor progress.
Here are a few task goals as examples: the child will be able to:
- Dress self in the morning when cloths are set out, in 10 minutes without prompting.
- Sit erect and work at a table doing drawing or hand tasks for 15 minutes without fidgeting or supporting the head with one hand.
- Climb to the top of the slide in the park and slide down catching weight on the feet at the end of the slide.
- Climb the flight of stairs at school without holding onto the railing in 60 seconds.
- Hop down the passage (5 meters) on one leg.
- Do a handstand against the wall and stay up for 10 seconds.
- Run to the end of our street and back again (200 meters) in 2 minutes.
- Catch a soccer sized ball thrown to the left or right at waist height 15 out of 20 times.
