Educating Felicity & Friends

​​​​​​​​Children with Down syndrome and other developmental delays​ require a significant amount of repetition to acquire and retain new information.  In my experience, the trick is to find a variety of fun and creative ways to present and teach information that the child will be continually exposed to over long periods of time pertaining to academic goals (such as colors, shapes, letters, numbers, counting, sight words, phonics, etc).  It is imperative that the child is motivated and remains engaged in the educational activities for optimal learning to occur.
