Developing numeracy skills for children and young people with Down's syndrome

Online for professionals

This workshop is organised and run by 21 Plus. Developing numeracy skills for children and young people with Down’s syndrome is suitable for all staff involved in teaching and supporting pupils with Down’s syndrome in both mainstream and special educational settings at primary and secondary stages. It is relevant to speech therapists, educational psychologists and other professionals involved in planning and managing input to schools.

The workshop will be delivered online, in two separate sessions, one for early years/KS1 and the other for KS2/KS3. The workshop will last for approximately one hour, with 30 minutes for questions.

The session will cover:

  • the key elements of developing numeracy skills
  • why children with Down’s syndrome may find this subject challenging
  • the use of concrete resources to support learning
  • strategies that can be used to support numeracy access to the curriculum.

Our speakers are from from 21 Plus. Nicky Williams and Victoria Hughes will lead the sessions. Nicky and Victoria run the 21 Plus school support service as well as running the Talk Time and Talk About groups.

There is no fee to attend this workshop due to some funding we have received from the National Lottery.
