Training for professionals


Professionals benefit from our expertise and knowledge to successfully support children with Down syndrome to unlock amazing potential in their professional setting.

“Really good ideas about how to engage children in class and resources to use to bring them on. I’m very excited to take some ideas and implement them.”



We continue to strengthen our relationship with the SLT department at University College London (UCL), along with the Universities of Greenwich, City and Kingston. Students volunteer with us on Fridays and Saturdays to assist with group therapy sessions and practise their skills in different ways in Dexstars and Tweens.
