Primary Schools Downloads: General
Pupils with Down syndrome achieve higher levels academically in mainstream schools. They also develop independent learning skills and positive relationships with their classmates.
Reading Books –
We are now producing our own reading books. These books are designed to be used with typically developing children to help raise awareness, understanding, and a more positive image, of children who have Down Syndrome. They are ideal for use in mainstream primary schools. See here some examples of the pages to be found in Book 1 ‘Ready to Leap’ and in Book 2 ‘At School’. Reading books are priced at £6.99 per copy or £6.00 each when you buy sets of 5. Please contact us for details.
