Online course: Implementing the Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI)
The Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI) is an evidence-based program designed to teach reading and language skills to children with Down syndrome. Evaluated in 50 schools in a randomized controlled trial, the intervention is designed to be delivered by teaching assistants in daily one-to-one sessions, supported by the class teacher and school SEN specialists. This course is designed to supplement the RLI handbook to help schools get started implementing the intervention.
This course is designed for educators (teachers in mainstream and special education, advisory teachers, teaching assistants and paraprofessionals, speech and language therapists/pathologists) involved in delivering the Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI). Parents with an interest in the intervention and how they can support their child’s reading and language learning in partnership with their school may also benefit from the course.
This course is designed to supplement the RLI handbook, which also includes a resources CD and DVDs. It is assumed that course participants will have a copy of the handbook to work with.
