Speech and Language - Speech and language development for children with Down syndrome (5-11 years)
Advice and guidance to support the development of speech and language skills for children with Down syndrome.
This book offers advice and guidance to support the development of speech and language skills for children with Down syndrome. Discussing speech clarity, vocabulary development and grammar, it offers practical information in an accessible format.This module provides guidelines for the assessment of vocabulary, grammar, speech sound production and interactive communication skills, and activities to progress children's skills across all of these areas. The authors emphasise the importance of improving the quality and quantity of everyday communication experience for children with Down syndrome and the equally essential need to work on targeted activities for both speech and language skills. The majority of speech and language targets can be incorporated into the regular curriculum and daily activities in the classroom. 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.
