Seminars and Information Evenings

Seminars and Information Evenings

Here at The Down Syndrome Centre we take great pride in providing support to the whole family unit. One of the ways we do this is through training.

Our Seminars and Information Evenings are provided by accredited professionals and are open to families, carers and professionals who work with children with Down syndrome.

Our aim is to increase knowledge about Down syndrome, to fully understand the condition and it’s impact on individual lives and its effects on both development and achievement. The seminars we offer aim to empower parents and carers in a positive and progressive way.
