Down syndrome & autistic spectrum condition - ONLINE WORKSHOP

28 Jan 2022,

Wednesday 16th February and 2nd March, 10am to 12pm each day

COST: £40 per professional(£20 for second member of staff from same school)/£20 per family member.

The workshop will enable participants to share their understanding of how children with a dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and autistic spectrum condition develop speech, language and communication. Using several case studies we will discuss what we know, what we don’t know and what we would like to know! There will also be an opportunity to discuss and share ideas on how we manage communication, sensory issues, diet, feeding and unwanted behaviours.

  • An excellent day. I really enjoyed it and gained lots of ideas.
  • Loved the small group work.
  • Today highlighted to me the overlap of difficulties/symptoms seen in DS & ASC.
  • Today will make me look at children I am currently working with and think about how they present.
