Support On Communication for Professionals

We are able to support and help professionals who work with people with Down’s syndrome to support their communication and language development.

In the past, this has included education professionals, club volunteers and personal support assistants at nursery, pre-school, primary and secondary levels and beyond.

We work jointly with a large variety of professionals supporting children or young people with Down’s syndrome, providing information, strategies, and support, although not direct support to the child or young person.

Our service can support you so if you have a query, please contact the Family Support Service team at familysupportservice@dsscotland.org.uk or give us a call on 0300 030 2121.

We also offer Makaton workshops and communication skills training. You can find out more about these training sessions and the dates of our upcoming sessions at the link below.
