This 2-day course is for SENCO’s, teachers, teacher aides, specialist staff, occupational therapists and parent educators and includes presentations on a wide variety of topics.  Our presenters are experts in their field and are passionate about enhancing the education experience for people with Down syndrome, and other learning challenges.

The cost is $300 per person for school staff and professionals.  We offer a special rate of $100 for family members of people with Down syndrome across New Zealand.  Prices include GST.

The course aims to provide basic information and skills to attendees specific to educating students with Down syndrome or other special learning needs. Our presenters cover topics including the learning profile of students with Down syndrome, inclusion, use of visual supports and strategies to support learning in the inclusive setting, numeracy, and literacy and how to adapt the curriculum, and behaviour and friendships.

The course offers practical tips which can be implemented quickly, and we consistently receive very positive feedback from attendees about the wealth of information they are able to take back to their classrooms.

Please note sessions will not be recorded, so attendees need to block out these 2 days as if they were attending an in-person off-site event.  Timetable is included at this link – Timetable

We encourage attendees from the same school to sit together for their online session if possible – so that they can maximise breaktimes to jot down ideas.  Parents of the child with Down syndrome who are attending could also be included.

Excellent course. Reaches
beyond people with Down syndrome and into the rich spectrum of all learners!
