Welcome to The Lejeune Clinic
Early Intervention Clinics for Babies and Children with Down syndrome
The Lejeune Clinic runs Speech & Language and Occupational Therapy Support for Babies and Children with Down syndrome
Our current online sessions focus on developing your child's speech, language and communication and their physical development. In our parent training webinars led by our specialist therapists, we provide an insight into the theory behind how a child's development can be supported through targeted interventions. In our sessions we offer advice on introducing structures, strategies and tips on how to help from the earliest stages of development along with practical activities that can be incorporated into their everyday lives.
This shared intervention is proven to have excellent outcomes for our children and enables parents to understand more about their child’s condition and to learn how to best support them and to give them the best start in life.
We run a variety of themed Webinars that all include Q&A opportunities led by our specialist therapists and invited professionals.
The webinar sessions are recorded and are available on request to Lejeune members.
