From the publisher of Down Syndrome: The First Eighteen Months comes this comprehensive guide to ensuring that children who suffer from Down Syndrome have all the tools needed to communicate effectively and efficiently. While it's common knowledge that the foundation for speech should be laid down as early as possible for children with Down Syndrome, new research shows that the most effective means for encouraging successful communication skills is through a carefully balanced combination of spoken words, sign language, and text -- with close attention paid to hearing deficiencies and intelligibility issues. With practical advice and helpful examples, this release attempts to give parents and professionals all the tools needed to help Down Syndrome children from infancy to seven-years-old learn all the skills needed to become successful communicators.
