  • Working in partnership with parent & communication between schools
  • Practical strategies to support pupils academically (thinking skills, motivation & concentration, motor skills, literacy & numeracy)
  • Practical strategies to support pupils pastorally (behaviour management, social inclusion & friendships, life skills)

  • Allay any anxieties or lack of confidence
  • Everything in one handy photociable guide
  • Photocopiable – hand out copies to parents & all support staff

"Although I am experienced in working with learners with Down Syndrome, this guide has prompted me to review my own 'best practice.' Thank you!"
S Holt, SEN Lecturer and Independent Reviewer

"I felt that this was produced by people who really knew what they were talking about & which synthesised a lot of useful information into one user-friendly book."
