LOVE AND LEARNING

READING HELPS CHILDREN LEARN LANGUAGE!

Love and Learning is an effective program that provides materials and practical suggestions to help children with Down syndrome learn to read. Many of the families who attend the program at Loyola College in Maryland have used Love and Learning with great success.

Amanda's teacher was shocked at how well she reads. She took her all around the school to show other teachers. It was one of my proud moments. Everyone said I work well with Amanda and I taught her a lot. I say thanks but it is Love and Learning that has taught her so much.
