What is the best way to help Down’s Syndrome and Autistic children understand and handle relationships?

If you were asked to name half a dozen aspects of life that were difficult for teenagers you would surely put relationships high up on that list.  And this is undoubtedly doubly the case for students with Down’s Syndrome and autism.

Which is perhaps why the relationships series of booklets for students and the associated interactive resources for classroom use from SEN Press are always extremely popular.

We have produced six highly illustrated booklets which deal with different aspects of relationships, including everything from mum’s new boyfriend, to seeing a date from both sides; from sisters at war to staying out late.

These are in fact just part of the Relationships Activity Pack from SEN Press, which include interactive activities to use with whiteboards and classroom PCs, editable electronic versions of all six books, copiable resources for homework and classwork, teaching notes, and so on.

With such a wide range of resources it is of course possible to pick and choose the resources that are best suited for the young people you teach, and to guide them through this most difficult of areas.

You can find more information about all of the materials from SEN Press relating to relationships on our Relationships web page

Relationships is of course just one of the topics we cover and you will find details of all the other subject areas for Down’s and Autistic teenagers linked from that page.

Alternatively, if you have any questions about our work or you are looking for ways to teach specific issues please do email me at info@senpress.co.uk or call 01582 833205.
