The Communication Group aims to support children with Down’s Syndrome and their families. Parents, grandparents, carers, friends and their children meet weekly at:
Scartho Children’s Centre

Our aim is to develop the skills our children will need to become fully integrated members of society.
We would like to develop the group by further extending current activities, which are based on an understanding of the specific learning profile of children with Down’s Syndrome, to ease the childrens’ transition into school. By focussing on signing, language development, reading, numeracy and social interaction, the children can learn effectively, going on to read, write and access the rest of the school curriculum. Accessing suitable training and current knowledge of the child's attainment would be an essential part of aiding their smooth transition into pre-school and full time mainstream settings.
