Down syndrome

Individuals with Down syndrome show a specific pattern of strengths and weaknesses in cross-sectional studies of various areas of development. Some aspects of this phenotypic profile, such as strengths in visual processing and deficits in verbal/auditory processing have a direct influence on academic performance and all areas of communication (Fidler, 2005). Because of the poor auditory abilities and the complex relationship between the areas of information processing and reading development (Most, 2010), these populations are at a disadvantage. FONEMZ has proven to be a perfect speech learning tool for individuals who are strong visual and tactile learners, like many students with Down Syndrome.
