Absolutely brilliant, I wish this had of been available years ago. Today I have a much better understanding and I will remember to apply these practices in the future.
¨ Definitely feel much more confident and informed on the needs of children with Down syndrome. More training in the specific areas such as literacy and maths etc would be useful next steps for me
¨ There was so much information, a really useful insight into children with Down syndrome. Really well organised and presented. Would highly recommend
