See and Learn First Vocabulary 1 includes 2 sets of 48 pictures, together with a detailed guide and record sheets. The pictures provide visual support for teaching spoken language. New words are introduced steadily and taught through a sequence of 4 simple looking, matching, selecting and naming activities.

The vocabulary taught in See and Learn First Vocabulary is selected from the words most commonly learned first by most children. The activities are intended to supplement natural, everyday opportunities to learn language with the additional support most children with Down syndrome need to learn to communicate.

In addition to teaching early vocabulary, See and Learn First Vocabulary 1 teaches children to look carefully and identify the differences between pictures in matching and selecting games that can be used later to teach a variety of new vocabulary, sight words and phrases. It also encourages young children to pay attention and engage in teaching activities for short periods of time.

When to start

See and Learn First Vocabulary 1 is designed for children who are ready to learn their first words. They should be showing an understanding of objects and what they do, and may be attempting to communicate by babbling or using simple gestures.

Many children with Down syndrome will be ready to start these activities from about 18 months of age.

See and Learn First Vocabulary 1 can also be used with older children who are not yet saying all of these words - even if they understand some of them.
