"The support and training we have received has been the basis for my son going to mainstream school. Without early intervention he would not have been ready and parents and school staff would not have had the skills or confidence to make it happen."
"I have had help with everything at different ages, and I feel I could ask questions on any subject. I have been helped with toiling, problems in school, puberty, behaviour - all things that I would have believed were 'traits' of Down syndrome if I had listened to old stereotypes, thinking the child was stubborn, loving, strong etc. My now teenager is thriving in mainstream secondary school with peers. I am so proud. Without the help of the Down syndrome Training and Support Service, this story would have been very different."
