At School for Parents, most of our work involves children with motor learning difficulties or motor development delay. We encourage these children to develop basic motor, sensory and self-help skills such as sitting, standing, touching, listening, looking, eating and playing. Children are grouped by their age, specific needs and abilities.
The early intervention that we offer quickly benefits young children with cerebral palsy, or other conditions caused by damage to the part of the brain that controls movement. With the help of our specialised programmes and strategies, children learn to overcome their physical challenges and, so, their challenges to learning.
We’ve also developed a range of special communication projects for children with Down’s syndrome, who respond well to the structured repetition of fun songs, rhyme and play. These programmes are designed to follow the guidance of the Symbol UK organisation and are delivered by a qualified Symbol UK worker.
Our programmes for children with Down’s syndrome also included structured motor development activities.
