In Reply to: Re: teaching children with downs posted by Melissa on August 18, 2000 at 20:07:47:

: : 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.

I hope to help educate people as to the use of "downs" syndrome. The correct pronounceation is "down" syndrome. This is a common mistake but there is no s at the end of down. I may be a little picky but as a teacher I'm sure you understand the importance of grammar. My precious Down syndrome granddaughter is 2 and the light of our family.
