Welcome!  Congrats on your success Vanessa!

Stinkbug - I have done both programs with my dd who has T21 with great results! Please feel free to ask any questions you have.
Happy belated  World Down Syndrome Day!!!! 💛💙
2  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Experiences with Glenn Doman on: December 18, 2017, 03:07:27 AM
I disagree that oral skills are needed to teach reading. My dd was not very verbal when we started. Not only did it not slow her down but it dramatically increased her speech.  If we had waited she would have been delayed in both speech and reading. She is now one of only a very small handful of kids with Down syndrome that I know of doing typical grade 4 work in school. All thanks to her neuridevelopmental (Doman)program, early learning with BrillKids, etc.
3  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Experiences with Glenn Doman on: November 06, 2017, 02:04:10 PM
Hi, we really didn’t repeat anything besides leaving the flash cards out for dd to look at herself. When it came to words we really did not have to repeat because even if she forgot a single word she was continuing to gain knowledge on how words are  formulated and soon began to him to intuit them anyway so even if she forgot a word likely she would know it again when she saw it.

 We also did not test as we wanted to make sure to foster a lifelong love of reading and learning. If you have to test make sure you make a fun game with no pressure.
4  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: How do you encourage babies to stand/walk earlier on: September 03, 2017, 10:22:58 PM
 I would also suggest more creeping and crawling before walking. We actually placed our furniture as to encourage creeping and crawling more than walking. There are so many benefits to the Cross pattern movement of creeping and crawling such as brain organization, fine motor, reading ability and integrating  infant reflexes.
5  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: help required for 2.2 years old diagnosed with moderate autism on: April 16, 2017, 08:04:48 PM
I am from Western Canada and local programs will be different so I can't give you specific advice. I would suggest asking around locally whether in person or online to get more details. You could also call the agency in charge for more details. I have no idea about services in India however services in Canada for autism are generally considered decent.

My other thought is that there is a lot that can be done on your own - the best results we have seen in our daughter with Trisomy 21 is what we have done ourselves. Diet makes a big difference as in can in kids at risk for autism. There is a group called Recovering Kids on Facebook that is great. A neurodevelopmental program made a huge difference for our daughter.

Best wishes

I wrote a blogpost with lots of ideas on stimulating a newborn. Here is a link:

7  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: down syndrome and little reader program on: May 06, 2016, 02:39:47 PM
Emily - I deleted your post because the article linked was quite negative & not the views most of us here hold - much of the information is outdated. There are things that can be done & many of our kids are treated!  We use TNI as well as do neurodevelopmental programs. Our kids are reading & excelling at academics at early ages thanks to programs like BrillKids.  The stats on adoption could be correct where you live but here in Canada and I know for a fact in United States there are waiting lists to adopt babies & children who have Down syndrome. The world is changing for people with Down Syndrome. There are university graduates, people with drivers licences - completely independent people with an extra chromosome & we are excited to be part of this!
8  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: Flash cards in two languages? on: November 09, 2015, 03:48:08 PM
I would separate them but the most important thing to remember with any kind of reading program is to be consistent in how often & I'm the manner you show them.
9  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: To start or nor, and how? on: November 09, 2015, 03:43:53 PM
Sorry for the slow reply - I missed your question until now. Yes, like akalori said y ou can create your own content in any language. I would highly recommend using this program ( or even just flashcards) to teach him to read.  Teaching my daughter to read was the single most important thing I did to help her speech.  Please check out my blog that's in my siggy. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
10  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Anyone attempt FULL Doman program (reading, knowledge, math and exercise?) on: November 09, 2015, 03:28:30 PM
I admit that I feel I cheated a little when it came to sign language  happy  we used Baby Signing Time videos for a lot of it. This was how we kept K busy while riding in a rear facing car seat in the vehicle. It worked very well. She knew literally hundreds of signs - we lost track after about 325. The only downside was that she was so far ahead of us in her knowledge.
11  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Anyone attempt FULL Doman program (reading, knowledge, math and exercise?) on: November 08, 2015, 10:09:05 PM
We have done a full neurodevelopmental program with our daughter. It included almost everything listed above as well as more physical activities, vestibular stimulation, eye exercises & more. Yes it is difficult to do however  it was a top priority & came before housework, yard work etc. Here are some tips to fit it in:

If your dd has T21 you can apply for special needs discount. Here is some info on it:

Love Kahn academy!  I had forgotten about Watch Know Learn. Thanks Larry  smile I just went on & already found some videos for K's current science unit.
14  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: My boy with Down Syndrome is reading at age 2 and a half years on: April 20, 2015, 05:46:08 AM
Congrats!!!  We've had similar results with our now 7 year old daughter. .
15  EARLY LEARNING / Parents of Children with Special Needs / Re: For all parents of children with DS, please share your experience on: April 20, 2015, 04:56:45 AM
It's excellent! I researched many reading program when my daughter was a baby and BrillKids is by far the best one that I found & yes, this includes the research based specific at 21 programs.

My dd didn't to seem to learn as quickly with the commuter screen so we printed off most of our cards & fast flashed them.

My daughter was reading words by 15 months & by 3.5 years she was reading simple commercial print stories. Now in grade one ages still ahead of her typical peers in reading. It helps her in all subjects as she is able to read directions in math, science, or any other subjects.

Here is a link to info on the BrillKids special needs discount. Check out the videos of my dd reading on my blog too.
