Many children and young people with Down syndrome and other learning disabilities are able to master telling the time, using money and grasp the maths to support these skills. Often, however, they are not provided with the opportunity to learn these skills
to a level needed to bring independence. This course covers the topics of time and money from the very basics of days of the weeks and recognising coins through to telling any time and understanding the value of money and using it to buy everyday items.
It also covers place value, 3 digit numbers and the number skills that underpin time and money (counting in 5s, etc)
