The RLI programme, detailed in a teacher’s handbook and DVD developed and produced by Down Syndrome Education International, provides a systematic structured approach via daily activities that can be finely adapted to each child. The training days will
cover the theory behind the programme, how to assess a child to find a starting point, how to monitor and record progress and how to deliver the daily intervention with examples from, and reference to, the teacher’s handbook and DVD.
The RLI programme comprises of two strands of intervention; a reading strand and a language strand.
The aim of the RLI programme is to:
- Improve spoken language and literacy skills of children with Down Syndrome.
- Improve teaching practice and support educators – we have for a long time known reading is a strength for children with Down Syndrome but not all educators are aware of this or how to ensure the children reach their full reading potential.
