Join us for an important seminar on improiving speach and communication skills for students with Down syndrome.

DSG Office: 5960 Dearborn St. Suite #100 Mission, KS 66202

As a pediatric SLP and parent of a child with Down syndrome, I have a unique opportunity and perspective.  Have you wondered why speech is so difficult for your student/child?  Why they seem to know or understand something one day but not at a later date?  Have you considered how memory and processing affect language learning and Use?  Are negative behaviors impeding progress?  This presentation will highlight the typical

learning profile for students with Down syndrome, language supports and strategies. We will also identify ways memory directly impacts language and learning and discuss speech therapy considerations and techniques. Attendees will learn interventions to prevent negative behaviors and adapt curriculum as well as language facilitation strategies that can be used across all environments.



  Breakfast provided. No childcare will be available for this event.
