We provide Speech and Language Therapy for children with Down Syndrome living in the Berkshire are.  Learning to speak is particularly challenging for children with Down Syndrome.  They have poor muscle control making it difficult for them to make the sounds to speak.  Their learning disability makes it difficult for them to learn words and sentence construction.  And, many children with Down Syndrome, have temporary or permanent hearing loss making it difficult for them to hear and decipher key sounds.  We believe that early intervention is key to give these children the chance to reach their full potential.  By donating to this cause, you will be helping children with Down Syndrome learn the skills to integrate into daily life.
