Welcome to The Lejeune Clinic
Early Intervention Clinics for babies and children with Down syndrome
The Lejeune Clinic runs Speech & Language and Occupational Therapy for babies and children with Down syndrome
Our Clinics focus on developing the child’s language and communication as well as their physical development. The sessions provide interventions with advice and recommendations for parents and carers on how to help their child with their next stage of development together with practical skills and activities which can be incorporated into their everyday lives.
This shared intervention is proven to have excellent outcomes for the children and enables parents to learn more about their child’s condition and how to practically help them and give them the best start in life.
We run a variety of sessions including –
Baby Groups, Early Intervention Groups and Buddy-Ups.
All our Clinics combine practical therapy with observations, advice and discussion.
We offer subsidised rates for all our Clinics and families pay a contribution towards the cost. We also fully fund children whose family is in finacial need, this is so that all families can attend. Our Clinics aim to supplement NHS therapy services. Our webinar parental training talks cost £10 per family.
Whilst our face to face Clinics are temporarily suspended we are currently running therapy webinars with Q&A session oppotunities:

“...A great source of intensive and tailored advice on both learning development and physical development. Great practical advice, useful materials to use at home and ideas for how to continue development.”
Speech & Language Therapy (SLT) and Occupational Therapy (OT) are proven to have hugely beneficial effects on the progress and development of children with Down syndrome. Our targeted sessions are run jointly by two specialist therapists in SLT & OT. Parents are invited to join the sessions to learn about the practical activities that can be incorporated into their child’s everyday life.
