Self-Care at Home
Some children and adults with cognitive deficits might need only minimal support at home, while others with more significant deficits may need more help. A parent or caregiver should focus early on helping a child to develop skills to care for himself or herself.
Knowing the developmental abilities of a child is helpful to ensure that learning and adaptive demands are reasonable and that appropriate supports are in place to help the child be successful.
