Inclusively Down supports schools, settings, families and professionals to further develop their knowledge and skills to establish an inclusive learning environment which meets the individual learning needs of children and young people with Down syndrome.
We offer bespoke and personalised support which really meets children and young people’s individual needs. We believe that every child and young person regardless of ability has a right to an inclusive and outstanding education, which supports their emotional wellbeing and prepares them for independence and living a fulfilled life.
Supporting Schools and Settings
Inclusively Down offer consultation visits and packages and are expert at working directly in schools and settings alongside staff and with pupils, offering advice, support and pro-active practical strategies on a wide range of topics including differentiation of the curriculum, the specific learning profile, behaviour, social skills, support and transition.
Supporting Staff Development
Inclusively Down design and deliver an extensive range of training courses, to en-skill professionals, parents and carers to meet the individual learning needs of children and young people with Down syndrome. These can be bespoke, to meet individual requirements, or we run national events throughout the year, details of which can be found on our website www.inclusivelydown.co.uk
Inclusively Down believe parents and families are paramount to the progress and successful inclusion of children and young people with Down syndrome. Parents are the first teachers and know their children best. It is crucial that schools, settings and professionals work in partnership with parents. Inclusively Down actively supports this through working directly with parents and agencies to ensure the best outcomes for their children.
