Primary School

Children with Down syndrome are not simply developmentally delayed but have a specific learning profile. When planning and differentiating programmes of work for the child with Down syndrome, the characteristic learning profile, together with individual needs and variations within that profile, must be considered and matched to the subject matter. Of particular importance is the development of literacy & numeracy skills while supporting speech, language, communication and memory development. Consideration must also be given to the emotional and social development of the child.
