Welcome to The Lejeune Clinic
Early Intervention Sessions for babies and children with Down syndrome
The Lejeune Clinic runs Speech & Language and Occupational Therapy for Babies & 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 –
Parent Training Webinar Sessions and Topical Q&A Sessions.
All our Clinics combine practical therapy with observations, advice and discussion.
We offer subsidised rates for our sessions so that all families can attend. We aim to supplement NHS therapy services and our regular Clinics are based in London’s Sloane Square. Any family on low income may contact us for support with session costs.
