Event Details

This live online event offers an introduction to DSE's new reading and language intervention for primary/elementary aged children with Down syndrome.

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 and found to improve rates of progress compared to ordinary teaching.

This event is aimed at parents and educators interested in learning more about RLI. It offers an introduction to the new teaching programme, describing how it was designed and evaluated, who it is for, what is involved in delivering it, and what resources are available to support its use.

The event lasts 60 minutes, including 20 minutes for live questions from participants. For educators who have already purchased the handbook and are seeking more detailed practical information about getting started with the reading and language intervention, we also offer a "Getting started with RLI" session.
