Early Intervention Sessions for babies and children with Down syndrome

Our Clinics focus on developing the child’s language and communication as well as their physical development. Our sessions provide interventions with practical advice and recommendations for parents and carers on how they can help their child with their next stage of development together with practical skills and activities which can be incorporated into their everyday lives.
These combined interventions are proven to have excellent outcomes for the children and enables parents to learn more about their child’s T21 condition and learn how they can practically support them and give them the best start in life.
