As a support group CDSSG recognise how important it is for parents to feel like they are doing the ‘right thing’ for their child. We aim to provide parents/carers with up to date information to give them the confidence support their child.

The group offers evening workshops in our Northwich office on a variety of topics such as Encouraging Speech & Language through Play, Introduction to Numeracy & Literacy for Children with DS & many more.

As speech is an area of difficulty for our children, the group has 3 Makaton trainers who run courses throughout the year. Makaton is a programme in which signs and symbols are used with speech to support spoken language.

Parents are also welcome to attend our training days which are primarily aimed at best practice in education.

Visit the green link menus just to the left for more details on the various training opportunities we offer.
