The Number Skills for Children with Down Syndrome (5-11 years) is an eBook (an electronic version of the printed 2001 version) that provides guidance and advice and describes practical activities to assist the development of number skills for children ages 5-11 with Down syndrome. The eBook covers awareness of quantity, size, weight, pattern, shape, time, and money and the importance of language for number concepts, and offers practical information in an accessible format.

The book draws on what is known about the number development of typically developing children to provide guidance and activities to teach number and math concepts to children with Down syndrome. The use of multi-sensory materials is encouraged and the need to make activities meaningful by linking them to the child's everyday experience of the use of quantity, size, weight, pattern, shape, time and money is stressed. The language needed for number and math concepts is identified.

The book is intended to be used by parents and education professionals and is designed to be read in conjunction with other books in the Down Syndrome Issues and Information series. In particular, it is complemented by the background information provided in Number Skills for Individuals with Down Syndrome - An Overview.
