Reviews

Reviewer: Down Syndrome Education International (DSE), UK
Review: “Our ‘See and Learn’ programmes are evidence-based, and make it easy to provide effective support for language learning and speech development during the early years—at home and in group and therapy sessions. In a survey of people using the ‘See and Learn’, 85% reported that their child’s language and reading skills have improved.”
