Event Details

This live online event offers parents and early years professionals guidance about language development for children with Down syndrome and how DSE's See and Learn programmes can be used to teach early language and reading skills.

See and Learn Language and Reading is designed by leading experts in education and development for children with Down syndrome. It helps families and professionals to provide additional support and encourage regular practice of early language skills for young children aged 15 months and older.

Many children with Down syndrome experience particular difficulties learning spoken language skills. Additional support in the early years incorporating teaching approaches that offer visual representations of language can be particularly beneficial for young children with Down syndrome.

This event provides a brief introduction to language learning for children with Down syndrome and explains how DSE's See and Learn Language and Reading programme can support early language teaching. The evidence underpinning the design of the programme is discussed. The activities in each step in the programme are described and guidance is given about how to incorporate language teaching into daily routines.

The event lasts 60 minutes, including 20 minutes for live questions from participants.
