School Training Days


Dedicated training support children with Down’s syndrome

Children with Down’s syndrome are all unique individuals; however, we know they share a common learning profile. This means we have a good understanding of how to support a pupil with Down’s syndrome in a learning setting and how to maximise their potential to acquire new skills and be included in the classroom with their peers.

This year the Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group are offering two virtual training sessions in November to support educational professionals who work closely with a child or young person with Down’s syndrome.

If you or your school are interested in one of our online courses then please get in touch for more information – chair@swindondownsgroup.org.uk
