Why do we need it?
Children with Down’s syndrome have a specific learning profile, with their own strengths and weaknesses. Research shows that certain approaches to learning can be very effective with these children, but this sort of specialist support is often only accessible to those with the means to pay for it.
Early intervention and specialist teaching services across the country were overstretched even before Covid-19. During lockdown many services ground completely to a halt and are now struggling to catch up. Teach Me Too cannot replace specialist intervention, but it can help to plug the gap by delivering key early cognitive and communication skills to a generation of children.
