Product description


"Pat Oelwein has developed the perfect method to keep the attention of all learners by employing flashcards, games, charts, and books. Her method is not only fun, but motivating and rewarding to the learner, as well as the parent working with the student."

"What a gift! Imagine reading a charming and delightful book full of games to play with your child--and having that child come out a reader by the time you've finished!...."

From the Publisher


"The gift of reading is one of the greatest treasures you can give a child. Most children with Down syndrome can learn to read, though, like all children, each has his or her own learning styles and needs. Different techniques are more effective with some children than others. Patricia Logan Oelwein developed her reading program at the University of Washington's Child Development and Mental Retardation Center, where it has been successfully 'field tested' for over twenty years. It uses a functional, language-experience approach, adapted for children with Down syndrome who may have difficulty learning to read with traditional programs.

The first third of Oelwein's book...describes how children with Down syndrome learn, and how to capitalize on their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses. The balance describes a reading program which can be individualized and adapted as needed. The pages are filled with creative learning games that can be played at home or in school, and specific instructions for implementing them. The upbeat tone-targeted primarily to parents-generates lots of enthusiasm. The appendices include sight words, picture and flash cards, game forms and materials, books, and information about other reading approaches, programs, and materials. Many of the techniques should prove effective with children with other kinds of developmental delays." - Disability Resources Monthly, Volume II, Number 10, May 1995
