“A PLACE to thrive…” That is the motto of The Down Syndrome Centre, Cork, located on Forge Hill.
In order for a child to reach their potential, they need access to resources in the form of therapies and intervention programmes, especially if they have extra or specific needs. A range of therapies and activities are made available to children with Down Syndrome at the centre.
Hayley Moore works as an occupational therapist there, helping children to develop important skills like dressing, writing, self-feeding and play skills. She also provides advice to parents on areas such as sleep and toilet training.
