DSE works to improve education for children with Down syndrome everywhere

We work to discover how and why development differs for children with Down syndrome, and how we can best help them to achieve their potential.

We deliver evidence-based resources around the world that help families and professionals to provide effective teaching approaches and interventions.

See and Learn

See and Learn offers carefully structured, evidence-based activities and guidance to help children to speak more clearly, to communicate more effectively and to learn to count.

See and Learn can be used to help children learn foundational speech, language, reading and numeracy skills from birth through to the early school years.
