I can't decide if I like this or not. It is an odd combination of info for families and education for people with disability. I actually think most of the DVD is too complex to use direct with people with disability. I'd still probably use it as a template for adapting rather than an as-is resource.

Development in practice :

Publication: Portsmouth Down Syndrome Educational Trust 2007 . DVD ; 76 mins 25 Date: 2007

I found this DVD excellent. It dealt very clearly with the stages of speech and communication development and it helped me understand how my son processes information. There are lots of ideas and examples for parents to try. I liked that the parent was the facilitator while the narrator explained. I will be coming back to this a few times as my little boy grows.
