Webinars on effective reading and language instruction for children with Down syndrome

Introducing RLI: effective reading and language instruction for children with Down syndrome
This live online event offers an introduction to Down Syndrome Education International's (DSE) new reading and language intervention for primary/elementary aged children with Down syndrome.

DSE's Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI) is an evidence-based programme designed to teach reading and language skills to children with Down syndrome. RLI incorporates best practice in structured activities delivered in fast-paced daily teaching sessions. It was evaluated in a randomised controlled trial and found to improve rates of progress compared to ordinary teaching.

This event is aimed at parents and educators interested in learning more about RLI. It offers an introduction to the new teaching programme, describing how it was designed and evaluated, who it is for, what is involved in delivering it, and what resources are available to support its use.

The webinar lasts 60 minutes, including 20 minutes for live questions from participants.
