We are delighted that Sue Madraszek of Symbol UK will be presenting at the Towards a Positive Future Conference on 16th June 2012 http://www.wordswell.co.uk/
Sue’s presentation will give information about the typical communication profile of children and young people with Down syndrome. It will explore the implications this has on how parents, health care staff and educators should interact with these children and young people in order to develop their full potential in the field of communication and thus enable them to access educational and other settings successfully. Participants will gain knowledge about this population of children and young people and be shown some very simple ways of making interaction with the children and young people more effective as well as learning about how to encourage these children and young people to communicate effectively, thus achieving their communication potential and supporting them in reaching their potential educationally and socially.
