Unique Paths: Children With Down Syndrome

A guide to inclusion in the early years | taught by Canadian Down Syndrome Society

Course description

Open a box of crayons and look inside. What are you likely to see? Colours, a wonderful array of colours! There may be a few blues but each one is unique and needed to create a masterpiece. Take out the blue and no more sky! Now, go one step further and add in a few special crayons. Perhaps one that will draw rainbows or swirls or maybe one that only draws smiles! Would you want a box like that? For me, the answer is a resounding "Yes!" This module has been adapted from the document Educator Package: A Guide to Inclusive Education for Children with Down syndrome.
