Growing up—Puberty and adolescence for young people with DS

9th May 2017 @ 9:45 am - 2:30 pm

An interactive workshop about adolescence and puberty in young people with Down’s Syndrome.  It will cover how to talk about physical and emotional changes, sex and relationships education and supporting friendships and self-esteem.  Led by Elizabeth Leggat, a professional trainer from the Down’s Syndrome Association plus guest speakers.

 

This course is particularly relevant for parents, who may be aware that puberty often comes earlier for children with DS, and professionals working with secondary age children.
