DSE launches new reading and language intervention: teachers' resources - webinars this month

Down Syndrome Education International (DSE) has announced that a new reading and language intervention for children with Down syndrome will be available from the end of November. The Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI) teaches language and literacy skills following evidence-based principles adapted to meet the specific learning needs of children with Down syndrome aged 5 to 11 years. RLI was evaluated in a randomised controlled trial in the UK.

DSE has announced that a teacher's handbook describing a new reading and language intervention will be available in the UK from the end of November and in the US in early December.
