This online course provides detailed and evidence-based information and guidance on education for children with Down syndrome. The course offers educators and parents practical advice on effective strategies for supporting learning across the curriculum and facilitating successful inclusion.
Children with Down syndrome experience specific learning difficulties and require additional, targeted support in the classroom. Over the past 40 years, research has helped us to better understand these difficulties and how best to adapt teaching for young people with Down syndrome. Presented and led by Professor Sue Buckley OBE, this course details what the latest research tells us about learning and development for children with Down syndrome and how this can inform more successful education in school.
This online course offers convenient and accessible training and support for educators working with children with Down syndrome aged from 4 to 16 years, including teachers and assistants, speech and language therapists, advisory teachers, educational psychologists and outreach/advice staff and volunteers at organisations supporting young people with Down syndrome. The course is also valuable for parents seeking guidance on how to support their child in school.
