Down Syndrome Training Days

Understanding sensory processing issues for pupils with Down Syndrome

Keys to supporting behaviour and learning

Pupils with Down syndrome often exhibit difficulties with taking in, integrating and making use of sensory information. These fundamental functions of the nervous system enable us to interact with our environment and other people, to learn new skills, and to get on with everyday life. Behaviours and responses that are initially puzzling, can be addressed when the contribution of sensory processing is understood. This training day for professionals and parents supporting children and young adults, offers an opportunity to discuss how sensory processing issues might affect pupils with Down syndrome, and to plan what can be done in everyday situations for individual pupils to make life easier, and promote the development of sensory processing skills.
