Welcome to Stepping Stones DS
Supporting children and young people with Down Syndrome and their families, one step at a time
Stepping Stones DS supports children and young people with Down Syndrome in North Hampshire, South East Berkshire and West Surrey. The group provides a wide range of support, activities and services for members and their families. All of these are designed to build confidence and support our members in reaching their potential.
We put a high priority on empowerment and provide training for parents, teachers and other professionals to allow them to better support our members. Stepping Stones DS has an active and involved volunteer base and is a self funding organisation. For information on how to join Stepping Stones DS please see our New Parents page
We have recently updated our Training page with our Training Programme for the 2019/20 academic year. We are really excited about the broad range of topics and feel that we are offering something for all of our members, please see our Training page to see this online.
Our beautiful publication “Our Stories” is now available to read online. this publication is for members, for families, for professionals, and for anyone who ever wondered what life might be like with an extra chromosome, please see our New Parents page to see this online.
