: I am a first grade teacher and I will be working with a student this year who has limited verbal abilities and is diagnosed as having downs syndrome. I am looking for resources or ideas to best educate this student. Thank you!
Hi, I Have workedwith a little girl with Downs in 4th and 5th grade - I am her teaching assistant and stay with her all day. Will you have a teaching assistant? Each child varies with learning ability. I try to take the 3 main points of a lesson and concentrate on them. A lot of time is sent on behavior and keeping focus.This has been a rewarding two year. Especially when she graduated from 5th grade.
