This package is aimed at children from 18 months onwards who have learning and communication disabilities. “Os Jogos da Mimocas” were purposefully conceived to be used with children with special needs, especially children with Down syndrome, and it: a) Promotes comprehensive and expressive language development, verbal short-term memory as well as auditory and visual discrimination; b) Develops speech intelligibility - print can be used from as early as two years of age to support language learning; c) Accelerates mastery of grammar and sentence building by the interactive use of visual material whilst enhancing visual and spatial processing based activities; d) Teaches Down’s syndrome youngsters how to read by means of a visual learning process. This program is based on the one used at the Sarah Duffen Centre, in Portsmouth, and promoted by Drª Sue Buckley (University of Portsmouth). This software can be used to: promote semantic comprehension, by increased comprehensive and expressive vocabulary and categorizations; promote reading ability, trough visual memorization of words; promote spatial awareness and sexual identification; promote the development of auditory discrimination and visual memory trough visual memorization and discrimination of words; promote sequential thinking and accelerate mastery of lexicon.
