Course for Parents of Children with Down Syndrome. PAST EVENT

A 2-day Down Syndrome training course for Parents and Professionals
Led by: Helen Long, Down Syndrome Advisor
This course will focus upon developing and understanding the function of behaviour and why problems may develop.

It will include ways to support your child/pupil to behave in a socially acceptable way and to prevent and change unwanted behaviour. There will be opportunities for discussion, to consider why your child/pupil may behave in a particular way and the impact of other children’s behaviour.  There will also be practical activities and time to begin developing a positive behaviour plan. Ideally parents and teachers or TAs should attend together, however this is not essential. This course is also suitable for those working with students with developmental delay.
