Inclusive learning to read for children from the age of three.
For children with Down's Syndrome, bookworms and dyslexics.
New edition of: Development-oriented Reading and writing lessons for all children based on "Nonlinear didactics." L.S. Vygotsky. Beltz, Weinheim and Basel 2004
During the sensitive phase of speech development, we can help children with Down's syndrome by using hand signs and characters to develop a missing functional system of spoken language. The main aim of non-linear didactics is to ensure the optimal development of all children. This process is not measurable in steady small linear steps, but in qualitative leaps. According to L.S. Vygotsky this process takes place in the proximate zone of development.
Teachers need to base their educational ideas on the actual psychological stages of child development. Their task, with an adequate learning process, is to enable each child make her particular leap from one stage of development to the next higher one.
With this book, this process is now available to all interested parties. The author shows how children with Down's Syndrome learn written language during the sensitive phase of language development, which begins at the age of two and lasts until the sixth. Early reading can help them to speak clearly by the age of six.
