Half term is now upon us – hurray!!!
Well done to all of our little Chatterboxes – you have made it through the first half of the Autumn term. As Autumn and Winter approach and the weather changes, many children with Downs Syndrome are more prone to colds, coughs, flu and it can be a pretty miserable time all around. As children with Downs Syndrome have smaller airways than ‘ typically developing’ children, being blocked up can effect breathing making sleeping much harder.
Getting out in the fresh air, taking regular exercise and increasing those Vitamin D levels help children with Downs Syndrome and everyone else! So fingers crossed we see some sunshine this 1/2 term.
