The positions she held in the program include teacher in demonstration classrooms, coordinator, and outreach trainer. She has provided specialized training for teaching children with Down syndrome and other developmental delays throughout the United States and in fourteen other countries spanning six continents.

Reading is an essential, enriching, and attainable skill for children with Down syndrome. This guide presents a nationally recognized reading program for children with Down syndrome that can be used to effectively meet a child's unique learning needs and style.

The reading method and lessons presented here are specifically designed to be motivating, fun, and rewarding. Filled with sample flash cards, games, charts, and recommended story books, the program emphasizes the visual learning style typical of most children with Down syndrome. Parents can customize lessons to capture their child's interests and set the learning pace to a level for greatest success.

This step-by-step guide to reading allows parents to work with their child at home and helps them coordiate reading lessons with teachers, ensuring the continuity of their child's education year after year.

Now includes a CD-ROM of all the visual supports. Print out the Appendices--picture and word cards, lotto games, charts, and more--as often as you need!
