We have subscribed to email updates from DownsEd International, to keep with their expanding online library - a fantastic resource, and freely available. Here is an extract from today's email (other news was about events in the US):
Down Syndrome Online has been updated to simplify navigation and to introduce a cleaner layout. We have also introduced a new search system - powered by Google - across our web sites, making it easier and quicker to locate information.
This update also paves the way for the release of new online editions of the Down Syndrome Issues and Information education series and adult series of books over the coming weeks.
Speech and language book online
Speech, language and communication for individuals with Down syndrome - An overview, by Sue Buckley, is now available in full online. This book examines what is understood about speech and language development for young people with Down syndrome and the principles of effective intervention and teaching support.
This is one of many books in the Down Syndrome Issues and Information Education Series. Further online editions will be available over the coming weeks.
