2012 Inclusion Conference

21 Plus is pleased to announce their 2012 Inclusion Conference Supporting Children with Down’s Syndrome at School and at Home on Friday, 12 October 2012 at Alice Springs Golf Club, Usk.

This event has been organised by 21 Plus with support from the Down’s Syndrome Association.  The conference is suitable for all staff involved in teaching and supporting pupils with Down’s Syndrome in both mainstream and special educational settings at primary and secondary stages. It is relevant to educational psychologists and other professionals involved in planning and managing input to schools as well as to parents of children with Down’s Syndrome.  There is also a workshop, which will be of interest to those providing non-school based activities that include children with Down’s Syndrome, such as clubs and leisure centres.

If you have not attended an educational conference on Down’s Syndrome before you will be introduced to the learning profile of pupils and the principles of differentiation which can support and include these children.  For delegates who have attended previously this conference will build on your existing knowledge and include a focus on literacy and maths skills in primary and secondary education settings, improve your understanding and management of behaviour and help you to include speech and language therapy activities into the school day.

During the day there will be opportunities to ask questions and to share experiences with colleagues, parents, experts in education from the Down’s Syndrome Association and a speech and language therapist who specialises in Down’s syndrome.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
