Come along for our second PLAY AND STAY (Via Zoom from your home), specifically for those with younger children and expecting families. This session will be broken down into two age ranges with our guest speaker, Laura Steere. It will cover top tips to support the early foundations of speech, language and communication development in children with Down Syndrome which are so key for their life long skills. There will be time after the speaker to have a general catch up on what’s going on in everyone’s lives.
Come and join us for a cuppa (BYO) and a chat. Little ones very welcome (virtual cuddles will have to do), a time to come along and meet other families in the same position. 21 Together staff on hand for advice and support.
