Abstract

Engagement of a child with SEN during therapeutical and educational activities is important in terms of their development. This construct can be understood as the time the child spends interacting with adults, peers and materials, in a manner appropriate for their developmental age. Routines-Based Model is one of the methods which particularly promotes engagement.
This study aims at measuring the level of engagement in certain preschool routines and its changes during the school year. The article consists of two parts; the first one presents issues connected with defining and identifying the levels of engagement, the second one discusses the studies connected with determining the level of engagement of children with special educational needs in the process of education.
The analysis of study results indicates that children in the tested group achieve the highest scores in overall engagement and engagement with materials. The highest level of engagement throughout the year has also been observed in those categories.
