Specialist Teacher Outreach Service (PDF) The Specialist Teacher Outreach Service provides a specialist itinerant teaching service for students on the Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) who are enrolled in their local schools.
Fiona Kenworthy, SLT, who presents the segment “Using visuals to assist children in accessing the curriculum” in Our Success in School-course, suggests the book Visual Support for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. However, this is aimed at children on the Spectrum and is not specific to Down syndrome.
This book is aimed at a broad range of ages, including high school students and includes some useful approaches such as colourful semantics. It also has some associated iPad apps/activities and lots of website ideas. It contains really good ideas for visual supports for handwriting, maths etc and shows images of students working on more complex topics (aim high!).
This book has great information on how to choose a system for a particular child rather than the one-size-fits-all method. Although it does specify autism, it is relevant for people with Down syndrome. A few negatives though are: it is not in colour, not as user-friendly as Dolly Bhargava’s book and is expensive.
