TOPICS

  • Expectations matter – how do we see people with Down syndrome? What is it?
  • Health needs that may impact on education and development
  • What is the vision? Where does someone with Down syndrome belong?
  • The learning profile of a person with Down syndrome. Strengths and weaknesses in the classroom

  • This is a free training day aimed at teaching staff working with children and young people who have Down syndrome.

    The Down Syndrome Bill, currently under consultation, calls for:

  • Mandatory specialist training for staff in mainstream and special schools settings and for the whole school community delivered by specialists in Down syndrome.
