Down's Syndrome

 

Down's-syndrome children with SEN

The abilities of children with Down’s syndrome vary enormously, but most tend to be within the mild to moderate learning disability range.

Parents of children with Down's syndrome are often concerned that a vulnerable child will be bullied or picked on.

Experience suggests that the reverse is often the case; children who have been perceived to be prone to this kind of behaviour have responded by offering support and protection to the less able child, bringing out positive behaviour and increasing self-esteem and self-worth in many who struggled to find any.
