We are delighted to announce a new counselling service for parents. This is especially targeted at new parents who may be struggling to accept a diagnosis of Down syndrome. However we recognise that there are challenges for all parents, the service is available to all parents. This service is. Confidential and members can access it by phoning Nicole below. We in DSL won't have any information  on who attends in order to preserve confidentiality. The service will be provided externally. A limit of six sessions will be applied.

I have designed and facilitated personal development groups, assertiveness training groups,parenting skills groups, stress management groups, supervision groups and reminiscence therapy groups. I have lectured at third level and designed and delivered several courses at post leaving cert institutions.

From an individual perspective I have worked with clients who suffer from social, emotional, psychological difficulties. Some of these include; depression, suicide, bereavement, anger management, anxiety, phobias, relationship difficulties,parenting, stress, post trauma stress disorder, self-esteembuilding and identity.

Speech and Language Tips

Play a game such as 'Simon Says', taking turns to follow and give instructions. This is a way of promoting both listening and expressive language (at an appropriate level) while having some fun with action.

Chairperson Message of The Month

For my second and last message to you all, if you have been on holidays I hope you had a good time and enjoyed yourselves and if you are still looking forward to sometime off, have a good time and stay safe.

I would like to welcome Claire Walsh, on board, as a temporary replacement for Breeda.

The next big event we have to look forward to is the Tour de Munster BBQ on Thursday August 6. You will have received your invitation by this stage, via e-mail and post. Please make a big effort to come along and meet all the cyclists who are doing this cycle for all our members in Munster. Claire needs to know how many people we will be catering for, so please let her know as soon as possible if you are going attend.  Looking forward to having a big turn out for the occasion and hopefully I'll see you there
