DS Specific Speech and Language Training 

Sign up for the next round 3 day course training for co-workers to run speech and language groups that assist people who have Down syndrome to develop their communication skills.

The co-worker network was set up in 2005 to address the shortage of syndrome specific speech and language therapy provision for people with Down syndrome, from babyhood through to adulthood. Across the UK, co-workers supervised by specialist speech and language therapists are providing effective and otherwise unavailable speech and language therapy groups to address speech, language and communication skills using syndrome specific approaches.

Experts indicate that syndrome-specific speech and language therapy is vital to enabling people with Down syndrome to make best progress with speech, language and communication skills, and supports learning and social inclusion.
