How to utilize the Curriculum to achieve maximum learning

This training day for professionals and parents supporting children and young adults offers suggestions on how to differentiate topic based curriculum work in useful and meaningful ways for pupils with Down syndrome, taking into account the cognitive, language and communication issues associated with the syndrome. Looking first at developing conceptual understanding, vocabulary and language in class topics, we will consider core ideas in key subjects and how these support life skills, and map out opportunities to develop key life skills in curriculum topics. If you are able to bring information about upcoming topics for your pupil, including outlines of units from the National Curriculum programmes of study that you will cover, then we can use these in the workshop to make plans that you can take away to implement in school.
