Development in Practice - Activities for Babies with Down Syndrome
Children with Down syndrome make progress in all areas of development, in the same way as other children, but usually at a slower pace. Some areas of development may be more delayed than others, leading researchers to identify a specific profile of strengths and needs. This film explores what our understanding of this profile tells us about how early development can be promoted for babies with Down syndrome from birth to 18 months. This film emphasises the importance of everyday family activities for children's learning and development. It focuses on practical activities to promote development that can be woven into everyday routines and activities. This comprehensive film is an important resource for parents and professionals caring for babies with Down syndrome.
