Booklets - transitioning to school/post primary

New Booklets in relation to transitioning to school/post primary – are available on our website under Docs.

Our Supporting students with Down syndrome in special schools booklet provides parents and educators with information

and advise on how to help students with Down syndrome thrive in special education settings. It also provides suggestions for intervention for children with a dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The move from primary to post primary school can often be difficult for any student. For a student with Down syndrome, that bit of extra thought, planning and preparation will help ease this transition – to the benefit of both the new arrival and the school. Our Supporting Students with Down syndrome transition from primary to post primary school  booklet outlines some simple initiatives and practical steps teachers and parents can take to support students.

A very useful tool to help ease the transition from primary to post primary school is preparing a Getting Ready for Post Primary School – My Workbook. Print off this workbook and personalise it with information, pictures and other useful tips and it can be used to prepare students for the move.

Six Managing Behaviour & Transitions for the Student with Down syndrome education conferences taking place around the country.  If you are interested in attending any of our upcoming conferences, please contact DSI directly.
