Learn to teach your baby: Down Syndrome Education International (DSE)

May 19, 2014 in Cognition

Beginner’s road map to DSE

The international charity Down Syndrome Education International (DSE) has taken the enormous elephant named “THE FUTURE” and has tried to turn in into bite-sized pieces for you. Take some time to tour this extensive resource. You will find information about adulthood, adolescence, and childhood. After you get a feel for the generalities, you can focus in on the time period of greatest importance, age 0 to 5 years. We believe DSE will empower you, showing you what YOU can do to help your child, increasing confidence about both the distant and very near future.
