1st July 2024, 1.30-3pm

The Learning Profile of Children and Young People with Down syndrome

Online for professionals

This workshop is organised and run by 21 Plus. The Learning Profile of children and young people with Down syndrome is suitable for all staff involved in teaching and supporting pupils with Down 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, as well as to parents of children and young people with Down’s syndrome.

The workshop will be delivered online, and is specifically for new staff that will be involved with teaching children/young people with Down syndrome in the next academic year. The workshop will last for approximately one hour, with 30 minutes for questions.

Our speakers are 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. Staff will be allocated to a workshop group depending on the age of the child/young person they teach or support, as two sessions will run concurrently.

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