The best remedy for regression is to prevent it from happening. Teachers can assist in preventing regression by recommending activities for parents to use over breaks. Age-appropriate activities such as doing reading activities together, calculating grocery bills, and keeping journals and scrapbooks are fun ways for kids to apply skills in meaningful activities.
For those students who have the most difficulty with recoupment, specially designed instruction may be needed during breaks. Parents and teachers should consult school administrators to determine if students are eligible and to find out about services available over break. Such services may be referred to as Extended School Services, ESS, Extended School Year, ESY, Supplemental Education Services, or other similar terms.
Each of these programs have specific requirements for eligibility, and parents can find out more information on those requirements by contacting their school principal, counselor, or district level special education coordinator.
In day to day specially designed instruction, teachers should include instructional activities to ensure maintenance and generalization of skills they learn.
