The Co-Worker Network

Supporting the communication of children and young people with Down syndrome – A 3 day course

Down Syndrome Development Trust & Symbol UK Co worker training details.

About the Course

This course  is to train co-workers to run speech and language groups that assist people who have Down syndrome.

Our colleagues at Symbol train staff to run speech and language groups that assist people who have Down syndrome to develop their communication skills. Co-workers run these groups, supervised by speech and language therapists who have specialist skills in addressing the needs of people who have Down syndrome.

About the programme

Working with the Down’s Syndrome Association, Symbol established the co-worker network in 2005 to increase the availability of speech and language therapy intervention for people with Down syndrome of all ages, in response to the difficulties that families, schools and others experience when trying to secure speech and language therapy input for people with Down’s syndrome.

Full information about the co-worker network is available at:
Cost for the full course:        £400
