Services brought to the child’s immediate surroundings facilitate practising various skills in a natural environment.
The RALLA service offers tools for rehabilitating children and supporting their growth in their daily life.
Good care and rehabilitation practices highlight services that are brought into the daily life of the child and family. Enabling the child’s participation must always be the starting point of special support and rehabilitation. For children in day care, this means participation in play and practising peer interaction skills in particular, but also learning the skills of taking care of oneself.
When the goals of education and rehabilitation are focused on learning participation and everyday skills, the assessment and intervention methods must also focus on the child’s natural activities and participation. The development of the child’s skills must also be monitored using reliable indicators that assess participation.
The goals of rehabilitation and early education must be set together with the child and family, and all parties must also commit to them. It is important that the tools used help to bring the challenges faced in everyday life, in particular, into the discussion. The RALLA service can be used to help demonstrate difficulties in play and peer interaction skills. The summary, skills and goal reports printed from the software help with planning activities that support the child’s daily life and rehabilitation.
Equal opportunities for participation
Good rehabilitation must be equal and fair. We need uniform criteria for determining the need for support. The summary report of the RALLA service provides research-based criteria for indicating when a child needs early and special support with practising play skills and peer interaction skills.
