A workshop to explore how to identify the tools and knowledge needed to achieve successful inclusion within a mainstream setting.
Children with Down syndrome have a number of issues both physically and cognitively to contend with, which can hamper their learning. This workshop will help you to gain a greater awareness of some of these issues, and how it affects social experiences within the school setting. We will also explore tools and knowledge to help you to differentiate the curriculum to achieve successful inclusion.

“Having set up the Seaford Downs Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group and currently as Director of the Down Syndrome Development Trust, and with a son of my own with Down syndrome, I have direct experience of what is needed for teachers and parents to work hand in hand in achieving successful inclusion for children with DS within a mainstream school and how important it is for these skills to be learned by us to enhance the social interaction and well-being of all children. Studies have shown that the positive social and emotional well-being of children with Downs syndrome considerably improves their learning and their friendships with others which promotes the healthy positive environment for all of our children to achieve the best they possibly can – with your help you can make this happen!”
