Welcome to The Lejeune Clinic
Early Intervention Sessions for babies and children with Down syndrome
The Lejeune Clinic runs Speech & Language, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy Support for
Babies & 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.
We run a variety of sessions including :-
Face to Face Sessions, Parent Training Webinars, Online Therapy Support Sessions, One to One Sessions.
All our Clinics combine practical therapy with observations, advice and discussion.
We offer subsidised rates for all our sessions so that all families can attend. We aim to supplement NHS therapy services.
Any family on low income may contact us for further support with session costs.
Parent Training Webinars:
We run a range of online parent training Webinars.
Past webinar recordings are available by request and a list of these is in our Members Section.
The National Down Syndrome Policy Group
is gathering information for the:
Down Syndrome Act Consultation
This can be accessed via
The NDSPG consultation is collating important information about the things that matter to people
who have Down syndrome as well as their families, carers and professionals who support them.
We need your input as this will help to better understand what works well for families
and in what areas there needs to be improvement.
The information will be shared with senior civil servants who are writing the Guidance that is required
by the Down Syndrome Act (2022) which will have far-reaching consequences for those with Down syndrome.
The NDSPG will share some videos made by people with Down syndrome and their families that will ask a series of questions about different areas of life including; education, employment, healthcare and social care.
This is an incredibly important consultation to provide evidence about life for people with Down syndrome
and to endeavour to make a greater difference to their future care.
This is YOUR opportunity to make a difference so that the guidance is both insightful, powerful and effective.
Please take some time to complete the online consultation form.
If anyone with Down syndrome needs support in filling out the form please provide it if you are able or:
Contact the NDSPG.
