POPS Reading Scheme

Last night’s course on ‘Supporting Children with Down’s Syndrome with Reading’ highlighted the POPS reading scheme.

The scheme is designed for children with:

Autism (ASD)
Speech and Language Impairment
Down syndrome

The reading scheme delivers a natural language experience where children are taught the language they will need in their everyday lives. The story topics are understandable and relevant to the child’s experiences. The illustrations are simple, attractive and uncluttered.

It progresses in small easy steps, helping the child to become an effective reader by developing both word recognition (phonics) and reading comprehension (meaning) skills. It is designed to be easily adaptable to the individual learning needs of your child.
