Reading Video 1: Successful Strategies for Beginning Readers with Down Syndrome
This 30-minute video outlines our successful strategies for beginning readers and contains both practical ideas as well as footage of these ideas in practice. It is never too early or too late for learning to read and these strategies can be used with very young children to the adult learner.
Reading Video 2: Successful Strategies: Memory, Phonological Awareness and Beginning Phonics
This 30-minute video is the companion to Successful Strategies for Beginning Readers and supports the next step in reading development. The video explains that students with Down syndrome may have difficulties with auditory memory due to auditory processing difficulties and/or hearing loss, and demonstrates activities that target the development of auditory memory.
