Why we need your help

EVERY CHILD DESERVES AN EDUCATION

For Christmas 2020 we would love to see this project launched for all the children with Down’s syndrome in the UK and beyond. It’s about time 2020 showed some positivity and you can make that happen!

For too long now, children with Down’s syndrome have been lost in a system that doesn’t fully understand their needs or value the huge potential for learning that exists within our community. Children with Down’s syndrome DO NOT have a consistent ‘global delay’. They have a specific learning profile with their own strengths and weaknesses. Research has shown us that certain approaches to teaching and learning can be very effective with these children. But still this access is restricted; generally reserved for those with the means to pay for the right support, or those who know how to survive in a complex system of education and care.

Teach me too is here is for everyone.

Regardless of wealth, race, background or region.

Every child with Down’s syndrome should be able to access this new fantastic resource.

What is TEACH ME TOO?

  • Video library of short videos delivered directly to the children.
  • Each stage has 20 videos between 10-15 minutes.
  • 10 Videos are produced and led by Inclusively Down (specialist teachers)
  • 10 Videos are produced and led by Key Communication (specialist speech therapist).
  • All videos are designed to use the strengths of learning for children with Down’s syndrome and to target key areas of the curriculum.
  • The videos can be watched independently by children but work best when an adult supports them. They can then use the techniques to continue learning at home or in school.
  • Two stages have been produced so far.
  • Resources have been specially deisgned to support this programme and these will be available (these are not currently covered by the funding at this stage).

Learn more about the programme.

Currently the programme has received funding to launch in Kent only. To make it available for the whole of the UK, and even the world, we need to raise funds to pay to buy the videos outright, and distribute them for free to absolutely everyone. They will benefit a range of learning needs, and although they are designed with children with Down’s syndrome in mind they would be a fantastic resource for any child.  

How can you help?

  • Start your own FUNDRAISER, from sponsored silences to marathons (Covid safe of course), anything is possible. You can raise funds online via this campaign page.
  • DONATE DIRECT
  • SHARE – Every person involved will make a real difference. Please share with your friends, family, networks and work colleagues. The more people that know about this project the quicker we can reach our target.  

How much do we need to raise?

STAGE ONE TARGET - £23,700

STAGE ONE AND TWO TARGET - £46,200

[i]What parents have said so far:[/i]

[i]"She is obsessed with the videos and there is going to be many tantrums (if she can't) access them"[/i]

[i] “The teachers were very clear to understand and the activities were easy to replicate”
 
[/i]

[i]"I thought it was excellent"


[/i]

If we do not meet our target by December 25th 2020, we will extend this until 1st September 2021. If at this point we are unable to pay for the project the money will be spent offering free online training available to all. Therefore still benefitting the Down's syndrome community.

If for any reason what so ever 21 Together are unable to maintain and host any videos that have been funded by the Teach Me Too project fund, all the videos would be loaded onto an open YouTube channel, and be sent to both the DSA and DSUK to ensure the videos could still be accessed

So many charities suffering worse than ever now due to COVID - Teach me Too provide essential resources for children with learning difficulties- which I?m sure many assume would be provided by health & social care but are not! Keep up the fantastic work
