Now that the start of the 2012 school year is just days away, it really isn't too soon to be thinking about resources for supporting students with Down syndrome at school this year (does it feel like the fourth week of January already?):
- This post from July 2009 is worth revisiting ... it links to two books (one of them also available as an app) that can help to explain Down syndrome to other children, which is sometimes a good idea at this time of the year.
- If you have a child with Down syndrome entering high school this year, we recommend Late, Lost and Unprepared as background reading. It is available for loan to Down Syndrome NSW members from our library.
- The Down Syndrome Research Foundation, based in Vancouver has provided a timely article about students with Down syndrome using devices such as iPads as a learning tool: iTherapy: Tips on Maximizing Your Child's Learning Experiences with the iPad written by Susan Fawcett, Registered Speech Language Pathologist
