  Learning to Read can be FUN

RAM LogoReading About Me!

Reading About Me!
is a beginning reading program specifically designed to hold the interest of visual learners and can be used by parents, teachers or anyone interested in teaching learners of all ages and a multitude of differing abilities - Down syndrome, Autism or others - to read.  Reading About Me! was developed by the Down Syndrome Association of Southern Oregon (DSASO) in conjunction with Pat Oelwein, author of Teaching Reading to Children with Down Syndrome  and co-author of Literacy Skill Development for Students with Special Learning Needs: A Strength-Based Approach, in order to provide individuals who have not typically been successful readers in school a chance to show that many can indeed successfully learn to read.

Joyce and StephenSuccess is maximized when the approach is FUN and personalized to the interest of the learner. Unlike typical beginning reading programs, Reading About Me! focuses on customizing the reading process through creating personalized books and word cards. Add FUN games, lots of praise, practice and positive feedback and you have a creative foundation leading to a life full of reading for meaning, function and pleasure.
