Pops Reading System


Just a quickie - Alfie's Nan and Grandad have brought me an article about some really brilliant books, a reading system designed for children who have Down syndrome. I don't know if they're available in Canada or the US yet but maybe our local library can get a copy (I've got an in there as Mat's a librarian).
Alfie and Noah are doing great - Alfie can pull himself up to standing!!! Wow! (He's only done it over the side of the bath so far - a bit dangerous - I've got to watch him like a hawk now), And he's started waving. It's just too cute. I'll try and get him to do it on video so I can post it.

Oh - it's called 'Pops' I've linked to it but maybe it didn't work - the link is here: http://pops-resources.com/index-new.php
Here's a review:

and I read an analysis in the British Down Syndrome Association magazine that was very positive - especially for younger readers.

I hope the pulling to stand goes well. We've had it in the bath too, but its a bit harder on the land it seems.
