Members with younger children will be welcome to join the fun at the dsOK annual Christmas Party. We have again booked the excellent entertainer, Stephanie, to lead the music making and party games. As she showed in previous years, she is skilled at enabling all the family to be included. As well as singing and dancing, for creative fingers there will be Christmassy crafts. After tea, Father Christmas will come with his sack of gifts to share with the young guests. Please book early! Download the Programme and Booking Form here

Date: Sunday 4 December, time: 2 - 5 pm, cost: £7 per family plus parents are asked to bring a wrapped and labelled gift (costing no more than £7) for each of their children.

Real Maths fun and progress

Maths Factor is strongly recommended by a parent member as a fun and effective way in which to motivate a pupil with Down's syndrome to enjoy maths, make real progress from Reception to the present level and want to do a little every day. The Maths Factor was created in 2010 by Carol Vorderman to encourage enjoyment of maths by ensuring progress, fun and achievement. Check out the Tower of Achievements on their website.

Until 9th Febuary 2017, dsOK members have been offered a unique code - click here - to access a month's trial for £1.

As you may have read in dsOK News, it is now possible to donate directly to dsOK via the Virgin Giving website. This is a great way to contribute towards the work we do including the Information days and social events we organise throughout the year.

Better still, by donating through the website, gift aid is automatically reclaimed on our behalf. That means for every £1 a UK taxpayer donates, dsOK receives £1.25 at no extra cost to the donor!
