Event Details

This online event introduces a new reading and language intervention for children with Down syndrome. The online seminar is aimed at teachers and parents interested in learning more about the new intervention - including what it offers, who it may be suitable for and how it was evaluated.

DSE's Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI) is an evidence-based programme designed to teach reading and language skills to children with Down syndrome. RLI incorporates best practice in structured activities delivered in fast-paced daily teaching sessions. It was evaluated in a randomised controlled trial nd found to improve rates of progress compared to ordinary teaching.

This online event offers information about the intervention and provides participants with opportunities to ask questions. Topics covered during the presentation include:

  • How Down syndrome effects language and reading development
  • How RLI was designed to help
  • How RLI was evaluated and what the study found
  • DSE's recommendations for using RLI with children with Down syndrome
  • What the intervention involves and how it should be delivered
  • Resources available to support educators
  • Other sources of support and training
