Teaching Reading Part A

This book is designed as a reference to be used in conjuction with the reading and writing programs from the Down Syndrome Society of South Australia Inc. It provides an overview about Down syndrome and the characteristics that make the acquisition of Literacy an ongoing challenge for the student and schools.

Section A provides an overview of the characteristics of the student with Down syndrome that influence the development of Literacy skills. Section B provides an overview of the research about teaching reading and writing skills to the student with Down syndrome. This includes information about medical issues, language cognitive development and learning styles. Section C discusses the use of total communication (signing, reading, language) to develop literacy skills.

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