See and Learn programme – training dates!

As you, our members, may know, we are investing in rolling out See and Learn with funds raised through our HB Fundays campaign this year.

See and Learn is an evidence based, structured teaching programme which teaches speech, language and reading skills in small steps for children with Down syndrome up to 6 years of age. 

The programme is designed to help educators and parents provide young children with the additional support and practice they need to learn language.

During 2020, we want to put a See and Learn pack in every participating pre-school in the country that has a child with Down syndrome attending and provide See and Learn packs to each of our 25 local branches.

We’ve been in contact with all of our member parents of children aged 2 – 5 asking them if they and / or their child’s early year’s educators would like to participate in our training programme and we’ve had lots of interest!

The See & Learn training programmes are due to begin on the 19th of August.

There are limited spaces available in our upcoming workshops in August and September. In order to avoid disappointment, please contact Gavin Mc Donnell at before the 15th August to secure a place. 

Due to large demand in some regions and smaller in others, it is essential that people confirm by the above date, so we can facilitate numbers.
