Opening a new Tesco store!
As a completely independent group, we are always looking for new ways to fundraise or to get out profile raised. We hold events, fundraisers and challenges throughout the year which help us fund these essential sessions.
In the past we have done:
- Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, 10k races
- Dress Down Day at school
- Coffee & Cupcake mornings
- A Film Night
If you feel you can support us in any way, we would LOVE to talk to you!

Chatterbox was established by a group of parents each who had a child with Downs Syndrome.
Children with Down Syndrome commonly have some sort degree of speech delay, so we formed a Group to address this issue head on and now work across a network of schools in the Maidenhead and Windsor area, providing invaluable, regular, focused speech and language intervention.
We work in partnership with a specialist speech therapy company – Symbol UK Ltd. Our Therapist takes time to get to know our children, what they find interesting or exciting, what motivates them, (what frustrates them!) and, in collaboration with the Teaching staff, work hard to ensure each child is able to access the National Curriculum as much as possible, aiding specifically in the areas of speech development, phonics, ora-motor skills and exercises which will strengthen the muscles in the mouth (especially the tongue).
