How do you teach your daughter that has DS. Give me so advice please.

How do I teach her. Hmm. Do you mean like, curriculum? Or actually sitting down and teaching her? For curriculum, I use the Wee Sing book, which is a pretty basic song-oriented classic pre school curriculum. Moxie can't sing many words but she loves the music. We use montessori activities for pre-writing and letters. We read standard books for children her age (- I can give you the complete list of her books if you want). For signing, we use Signing Time still. For Japanese and Spanish, we use apps on the iPad. We do puzzle/flashcard work with letters and sound combinations in preparation for reading and the Vast phonics apps (she LOVES them). I believe in student led education - I observe Moxie closely to see what she's interested in and leaning towards, then encourage that. I don't sit her down and drill her. Please let me know any other questions you have - I'd love to share resources and ideas. Also - there is a fantastic Facebook group for education/Down syndrome. I always turn to that group when I'm stuck.
