For individuals with Down syndrome, the extent of the effect of intellectual disability depends largely on the degree of provision of appropriate support and intervention. In Educating Learners with Down Syndrome, editors Rhonda Faragher and Barbara Clarke have brought together a number of expert contributors, whose chapters review recent findings in the field of DS education, highlight promising practices, and identify areas for future research. While the emphasis is primarily on the school years, links to early intervention and to life post-16 are made, with chapters organized into three parts: conceptual overview of issues in learning and teaching, learning mathematics, and literacy development. The book is also united by the cohesive themes of assessment, evidence-based practice, and inclusive practices. Educating Learners with Down Syndrome importantly incorporates the voices of individuals with Down syndrome, whose personal narratives add significance to the research mission of the text and demonstrate the authors' inclusive philosophy. Aimed at researchers, teacher educators, higher degree students, and policy makers, this book is the first of its kind to provide a compendium of research on educating learners with Down syndrome.

"I was very much impressed by Educating Learners with Down Syndrome. In Russia, we have great demand from school teachers to provide them with innovative pedagogical tools for children with learning difficulties and I'm pleased to say this book has aroused a great interest." - Natalia Rigina, Downside Up "Educating Learners with Down Syndrome is a strong addition to the growing canon of books designed to assist teachers and school staff on how best to cater to students with Down syndrome. For parents, the book is an excellent primer on the educational needs of their children, as well as a tool to direct their child's teachers to." - James Wright, Voice "Faragher and Clarke have brought together a diverse array of chapters that provide cutting edge information. [...] The emphasis on the core academic content areas of math and literacy in this volume is critically needed as educators, families, and other practitioners increasingly need strategies to teach core content in inclusive settings. [...] This volume sets the stage for ongoing research and practice." - Karrie A. Shogren, PsycCRITIQUES
