Reading Instruction

In 2012, the Down Syndrome Guild of Kansas City became the 10th installation of the Learning Program, a reading instruction program from the Down Syndrome Foundation of Orange County.  The Learning Program was created to bridge the gap between research and practice. Although researchers continue to discover more about how people with Down syndrome learn, their insight has been slow to filter to parents and teachers. The program focuses on parents as first-teachers for their children, bringing the fruits of research into practice. Knowledgeable parents can work more effectively with their children and give them a jump-start on education. The program also arms parents to serve as capable advocates for their children in the educational process.  View a brochure HERE.  Materials can be downloaded for free at the DSFOC website
