LP Online™ Level 1
LP Online™ is an online learning community based on The Learning Program™ and serves as a platform for sharing strategies, resources and activities to improve academic outcomes for students with Down syndrome. LP Online™ equips participants with knowledge and tools to work effectively with students with Down syndrome in home and school settings.
LP Online™ Level 1 is generally recommended for those working with students in pre-school through 1st grade (roughly ages 3-6). Level 1 focuses on supporting development of literacy skills (vocabulary development, sight word acquisition, sentence building and phonemic awareness), and math skills (early number concepts to 20, color, shape, sorting, patterning and time). It also addresses general topics such as educational options, fostering independence, effective learning sessions and memory.
LP Online™ Level 1 includes 10 Modules with accompanying handouts, instructional videos, resources and links. There will be weekly Zoom Q&A sessions as well as weekly activity demonstrations through our dedicated LP Online Facebook Group.
