reading and language intervention conferences for children with Down syndrome


DSE is hosting four one-day conferences around the UK this autumn to present their new reading and language intervention for children with Down syndrome.

RLI is designed for children with Down syndrome aged 5 to 11 years (years 1 to 6 in primary schools in the UK)
