Engaging and Motivating Your Student With Down Syndrome - Are you struggling to engage your student with Down syndrome and keep him on task? Is your student capable of more, but  you just can’t figure out how to help the student manage impulsive behaviors that distract from learning? Learn practical strategies and real time solutions to help you work effectively and with your student who has Down syndrome. 





Down Syndrome 101 for Educators is designed to help educators better understand what Down syndrome is and how the condition affects academic learning and socialization. Medical, social, communication and behavioral issues and strategies are covered. We will also discuss the role of a paraprofessional and how to set the student up for success based on adult interactions and supports and ways to change the environment to help the student be more independent.

Practical Solutions for Improving Speech and Communication in students with Ds
As a pediatric SLP and parent of a child with Down syndrome, I have a unique opportunity and perspective. Have you wondered why speech is so difficult for your student/child? Why they seem to know or understand something one day but not at a later date? Have you considered how memory and processing affect language learning and use? Are negative behaviors impeding progress?

Down Syndrome Specific Curriculum Supports
This educator led interactive seminar will help you better understand education support materials designed for learners with Down syndrome. Curriculums which improve reading, literacy, math, handwriting and memory skills will be covered. Explore how these programs can be applied to your existing curriculum.
