Based on the face-to-face Learning Program, LP Online™ equips participants with the knowledge and tools to work effectively with students with Down syndrome in home and school settings.

We are currently seeking grant funding to update VisuaLearn. The newest IOS made the app inoperable. We will make an announcement if we are able to secure funding to upgrade.

If your learner is motivated by iPad use, try our Learning Program app, VisuaLearn. This app supports learning of 144 sight words from the program's Level 1 class through 24 Sight Word Readers (users can read, match, select, name, line draw and build sentences).
