Practical Solutions for Improving Speech and Communication in students with Ds
As a pediatric SLP and parent of a child with Down syndrome, I have a unique opportunity and perspective. Have you wondered why speech is so difficult for your student/child? Why they seem to know or understand something one day but not at a later date? Have you considered how memory and processing affect language learning and use? Are negative behaviors impeding progress?
Down Syndrome Specific Curriculum Supports
This educator led interactive seminar will help you better understand education support materials designed for learners with Down syndrome. Curriculums which improve reading, literacy, math, handwriting and memory skills will be covered. Explore how these programs can be applied to your existing curriculum.
