Homeschooling :  Down Syndrome

Many children with Down Syndrome need additional support with: • Speech/Language • Fine Motor Skills • Gross Motor Skills

And I’m going to share how those three areas have served as the guide as we homeschool Aubrey.

If you would like to read more about specific speech tools, therapeutic resources, etc. that we’ve used with Aubrey since she was a baby, ARK therapeutic tools continue to be a huge help to us.
