Very often, Down syndrome children are associated with some impairment language ability, cognitive ability, fine motor, gross motor, self help and social emotional. Early childhood intervention includes screening for common problems, and vocational training can improve the development of children with Down syndrome. However, Early Intervention Program (EIP) is not widely and effectively implemented in Malaysia due to several obstacles. In this study, the language assessment and training will be prioritized, in which the support system will provide the most effective assessment and training method to the children.

The result of this study is expected to be beneficial and able to assist parents and trainers on effective language training for special children. In conclusion, an effective language assessment and training support system has been developed for the improvement of the children’s language ability and their quality of lives in the long run.
