Down Syndrome International (DSi) is delighted to announce the publication of the International Guidelines for the Education of Learners with Down Syndrome.

“The guidelines have been developed to improve the availability and quality of education for people with Down syndrome around the world and to contribute to the realisation of their right to an inclusive education and lifelong learning as outlined in Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

The guidelines have been written by educational professionals and experts in the field with input from our global network of members and stakeholders to ensure their global relevance and value. They provide best-practice guidance for learners, teachers and managers in pre-school, school and post-school education settings to promote life-long learning.”
