Reading, Language Intervention for children with Down syndrome
Wednesdays 8th & 15th Nov ‘23.
This training course is over 2 half days, 9.30am to 12.30pm.
The RLI programme detailed in a teacher’s handbook and DVD (now a digital download) 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.
· COST: £80 per professional (£20 for second person from same school)/£20 per family member for both days inclusive.
· Excellent. I have already put some things into practice and can see it will make a huge difference to lots of our students
