Education Day - October 2008

Our education day (which took place on Saturday 11th October at the wonderful offices of Thomas Eggar solicitors in Crawley) was attended by 40 parents and professionals involved in our children’s care – including Portage tutors, speech therapists, occupational therapists, SENCo’s and teaching assistants, and community paediatricians. The topics covered were:

Supporting social and emotional development and managing behaviour

  • What do we know about the behaviour of children of Down syndrome?
  • How can we change behaviour, promote full social inclusion and support friendships?

Meeting the educational needs of children with down syndrome

  • Evidence based practice
  • Whole school issues for inclusion
  • Guidance for accessing the curriculum
  • Preparation for school
  • What do we know about children’s understanding of numbers and how can we help them?

We are already planning our next education day for autumn 2009 – please email committee@psds.info if you are interested in attending or if there are topics you would like to suggest for consideration.
