Chatterbox is the Speech and Language arm of York Down Syndrome Support Group.
We currently run 2 Speech & Language groups in York for primary school children. The sessions are delivered by our qualified specialist Speech & Language Therapist.
Each group meets weekly during the school term, for approximately 50 minutes. We alternate sessions between "in person" at a local school and online "zoom" sessions.
Each child is accompanied by a teaching assistant, to give support to join in and to enable activities to be repeated and skills consolidated in between sessions. Sessions are designed to be highly motivating and tailored to individual needs, with games and songs incorporating work on speech, language, signing skills and social interaction.
To learn more about each of these groups, or if you would like to discuss your child accessing 'Chatterbox', email firstname.lastname@example.org
