Down Syndrome Education International is a leading international charity dedicated to raising levels of educational achievement among children with Down syndrome. We have been at the forefront of developmental and educational research and evidence-based services improving outcomes for children with Down syndrome for over 30 years. Every child deserves a good education - one that welcomes them a valued member of their community and recognises their individual learning needs and their particular strengths. Children with Down syndrome experience a variety of delays and difficulties that affect many areas of development. Research is steadily improving our understanding of these challenges. It is also helping us to identify more effective teaching approaches.
