Testimonial by Mum, Elaine Lande

Emma is a very happy, busy and lovable little girl. She attends mainstream school and is heading into 3rd class in September. Her brother, Tom, is in the same school and they’re great buddies.

Emma is shy and would always be more of an ‘observer’ than a ‘participant’. It takes Emma some time to feel comfortable with situations and people but when she does then she can take over!

Emma absolutely loves going to The Down Syndrome Centre where she regards it as playtime with Ellie and Claire and definitely not as any form of therapy. She also attends Summer and Easter Camps where she gets the opportunity to play in a structured way with her friends that she’s known since she was a baby – The Down Syndrome Centre is a wonderful place to promote friendships in a very relaxed environment.

Testimonial by Ellie Reilly, Occupational Therapist

Emma runs into the centre each week with her cheerful smile. However, don’t be fooled by her well-spoken manner and compliments, she also has a mischievous streak! I love Emma’s personality; she is determined and confident, which shows in her independence skills. It is my pleasure to work with Emma and her family.
