This 30-minute video is the companion to Successful Strategies for Beginning Readers and supports the next step in reading development. The video explains that students with Down syndrome may have difficulties with auditory memory due to auditory processing difficulties and/or hearing loss, and demonstrates activities that target the development of auditory memory. Strategies to support phonological awareness, the ability to hear sounds and syllables within words and to hear words within sentences, are also demonstrated. Phonics skills, which allow a student to understand the relationship between sounds and letters and use these skills to decode unknown words, are also explored.
