About Down's Syndrome : Speech Sound Development in Children with Down’s Syndrome and Typically Developing Children


University Reading

A study on speech development in children with Down syndrome (aged between 5-12 years) compared to typically developing children (aged 3-6 years) is currently being conducted at the University of Reading.

The aim of the study is to explore and analyse the speech sound systems in both groups. The study findings will provide useful information about speech development in children with Down’s syndrome and help speech and language therapists in their decision making process about the most suitable speech and language intervention programmes.

Awaiting summary of findings.
