Teachers, parents and families can use this packet to educate themselves regarding their student or family member’s communication difficulties. This packet includes definitions and
descriptions of Down Syndrome, as well as information on resources and support groups in their community.
Speech-language pathologists and students of communication disorders can use this packet to share information with clients in schools and clinics. They can use the resources provided to help clients find additional resources and support.
There is also great information to include in reports to familiarize readers with Down Syndrome. SLPs can use the resources and references to improve client services.
Whether you are a parent, teacher or professional, working with children and adults with communication disorders can be challenging. We hope to provide support and resources to
guide those who are dealing with communication difficulties and related disorders.
