Speech and Language - Speech and language development for infants with Down syndrome (0-5 yrs)

A programme of activities and advice designed to assist the development of speech and language skills for children with Down syndrome from birth to five years. (2 x copies in stock)
This module provides a programme of activities and advice designed to assist the development of speech and language skills for children with Down syndrome from birth to five years. It also includes checklist for evaluating and recording children's development of interactive communication skills, speech sounds, vocabulary, sentences and grammar. The programme will enable parents, teachers and therapists to help children with Down syndrome to learn to talk, to talk in sentences and to develop their speech clarity and conversational skills. It starts with activities to develop the foundation skills in infancy that lead on to talking, including the use of gesture and sign to support comprehension, and with an emphasis on speech sound work from infancy. Building a spoken vocabulary to 400 words by 5 years of age is seen as a priority, in order to develop grammar and phonology. The ways in which reading activities should be used to support all aspects of speech and language learning during preschool years are mentioned but the detailed advice on teaching early reading is in the reading module. This module follows on from Speech and language development for individuals with Down Syndrome - An overview which should be read first, to provide the reader with an adequate understanding of speech and language development to be successful in using this programme.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
