BBC News – Children with Down’s syndrome can get reading help

October 20, 2010

A new teaching programme developed in the UK could help young children with Down’s syndrome to learn to read more quickly.

Researchers say they noticed an improvement in the speech and language of around 60 children at primary schools in York and Portsmouth in just 20 weeks.

Maria Court’s six year old daughter, Martha, has Down’s syndrome and took part in the study. Maria spoke to BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast’s Shelagh Fogarty about her daughter’s reading progress.
