Swindon Downs Syndrome Group

Swindon Downs Syndrome Group

1 in 1000 babies are born with Downs Syndrome, which affects around 40,000 people in the UK.

Swindon Downs Syndrome Group is a small charity, which supports children and young people living with the condition in the region, by providing information, advice and support. 

Global’s Make Some Noise will be supporting the charity’s speech therapy sessions, which give youngsters the opportunity to practice their communication skills in a structured, safe and fun environment. 

Ethan is just one of the children supported by Swindon Downs Syndrome Group. Before joining the group, he was very aware of his difficulties with speech and avoided speech with all but his family. Now, thanks to the support from charity, Ethan has now become much more confident about using his voice. 

His mum said: “Over the summer, and since starting the new school year, Ethan has continued to grow with his speech and language skills. Ethan continues to say new words and has been particularly pleased with himself for being able to say his uncle and cousins’ names.

He loves the praise and smiles he receives and is very excited when you have understood him. His favourite thing at the moment is to say ‘coconut cake’ whenever he can as he loves the response we give. It’s quite a tricky thing for Ethan to say and he will say it loud and proud every time! 

Ethan still really enjoys speech group and his confidence continues to grow.”
