A regular forum for teaching assistants who support children with Down syndrome.

We had a great turn out last term and it was interesting to hear difference experiences.

This will take place at 21 Co. Shop & Café from 1:30pm – 2:45pm. The session will be free of charge but there will be refreshments available to buy from the café.

This session will have a focus on positive behaviour support and is being led by Cherie Andrews. Cherie has 23 years' experience and knowledge in a professional capacity as a registered learning disability nurse and health visitor. She worked in the Learning Disability Nursing team for 7 years and in Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for 3 years. Her keen interest and experience in these roles were positive behaviour support where she developed, set up & ran a course for families as well as helping to develop a positive behaviour pathway within CAMHS. Cherie has extensive experience supporting parents & carers in group sessions and on an individual basis.

It is also an important opportunity for teaching assistants to ask questions and share their knowledge, resources & experience with each other.

We aim to run these sessions every half term. Please share with your schools and ask them to contact to confirm attendance.
