Service description:
Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy Services for Children with Down Syndrome from birth to 4 years old.

This group meets monthly on a Friday from 12pm to 1:15pm

The occupational therapist and speech and language therapist chat with each parent and do a mini review of the child to provide input and advice. Feedback is aimed at promoting the child's development in motor, sensory processing, self-care, feeding, oral placement and speech and communication skills.

Targets are developed in collaboration with the parent and monitored by the therapists. These informal sessions also allow parents to have a coffee and chat with each other while their children play.

Portage workers, educators, teaching assistants and other professionals working with a child attending the group are welcome to come along and share their knowledge and targets for the child in order to ensure consistency and collaborative, multidisciplinary working.
