(I found this link via another blogger friend who also has a child around the same age as Avery…I went to it and listened to it…very informative…so I thought I would pass it along…)
A MUST LISTEN & SHARE for parents & educators--tips from an expert working with 55 people with DS. Hear learning tips straight from the expert and connect with a WONDERFUL resource. She provides tips for teaching them how to read…write and do math..
Yvonne Pierre welcomes Terry Brown, affectionately known as “Mrs. Brown” by her many learners, has a passion and a gift for teaching individuals with Down syndrome. She began her career of teaching children with special needs within the public school system before she began teaching from her home. She has developed a successful and innovative program, “So Happy to Learn” that teaches reading, writing and math to children and adults with Down syndrome. Terry Brown was named Down Syndrome Association of Orange County's 2001 Educator of the Year. In 2004 Mrs. Brown developed and taught a yearlong pilot program for DSAOC designed to help parents teach their children to read. She has presented “So Happy to Learn” at workshops and conferences for parents and educators.
