This presentation will review the available research on reading in Down syndrome and offer guidance for parents, educators, and other practitioners working with this population. We will start by defining different reading subskills and outlining typical reading development, including stages of prereading, learning to read, and transitioning to using reading as a tool for learning. We then use these stages to review what is known about reading in Down syndrome, including relevant intervention work.
The Ed Series is hosted by Dr. Susan Loveall, assistant professor in Special Education and Communication Disorders at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, NE. She runs the Learning Lab for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. She earned her PhD in Developmental and Cognitive Psychology from the University of Alabama in 2013. Her research focuses on learning, language, and literacy in individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The ultimate goal of her research is to design and implement effective interventions to improve learning, language, and literacy outcomes.
