Syndrome Specific Speech and Language Therapy
Welcome to our new Tutoring Service
We are currently running a tutoring service for children and young people with Down syndrome using DS best practice techniques.
No matter where your child is with their skills, our tutors will be able to support your child’s learning from the basics up-to GCSE.
These best practice techniques are delivered in a fun and engaging manner to help your child/young person build on their curriculum vocabulary and literacy skills.
How it Works
Your child will complete an educational questionnaire so the tutor can plan the lessons and activities appropriate to your child.
These sessions are available online and can be delivered into schools to support teachers and TAs with DS best practice.
Also during out-of-school hours as top-up learning.
Each session is between 30-45min depending on the child’s level of concentration and costs £25.00.
Fees are paid in advance. There are discounts for block payments.
All ages welcome
To find out more or to register your interest, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, call us on 01323 893323 or message us via DSDT Facebook – facebook.com/downsyndromedevelopmenttrust.
Meet the Teachers
Hi everyone! I am Miz, one of the Fun and Learning Tutors at DSDT.
I am a qualified teacher and experienced community arts practitioner having worked in a variety of settings both within and outside of education. I spend most of my time teaching people how to juggle or hang upside down on a trapeze as the lead instructor and director of Sweet Circus CIC.
I love creating resources and helping our children and young people engage in learning. I also love family time (including the dog), being outdoors and occasionally singing!
Hi, my name is Heather and I have worked as a teacher in mainstream primary for most of my career, in both key stages.
Currently, I have two part time tutor roles: one working for Brighton University, supporting undergraduate teacher trainees when on school placement and the other working for DSDT.
I am originally from Yorkshire but have been settled in Sussex for over 30 years. I have two grown-up sons and two aged pets (a dog and a cat). The latter have proven to be very effective motivators for some of my DSDT work! I enjoy travelling, spending time with friends and family, gardening and walking.
