Speech and language activities for preschool children with Down syndrome
This film explains and demonstrates activities for promoting communication, speech and language development for preschool children with Down syndrome from 18 months to 4 years.
It focuses on practical strategies to promote speech and language development that can be woven into everyday play, routines and activities.
The film explores techniques to help children with Down syndrome understand the meanings of words, communicate what they know and develop clear speech. It also looks at ways to help them learn to read words and sentences, and explains how teaching reading benefits their spoken language.
The film was published in 2007 by Down Syndrome Education International, an internationally recognised leader in research and support for education for children with Down syndrome.
