Money skills are usually a challenge for learners with Down syndrome. Most ‘functional maths’ programs focus on outdated skills, such as using coins and calculating change.

This workshop for parents/carers explores key functional skills in financial literacy that will actually allow people with Down syndrome to participate in the adult world. 

Concepts will include 
  • understanding budgets, 
  • setting up electronic banking and using EFTPOS
  • strategies for teaching 
  • taking account of maths learning profiles 
While this session is targeted towards parents/carers, should you wish to bring along your person with DS, we are happy to offer them a discounted rate of 50% (if accompanied by a paying registrant).

Date: Wednesday 16 March 2016 Time: 7:30 – 8:30 pm Venue: SMC Conference and Function Centre, 66 Goulburn Street, Sydney Cost: $55 per session, inc GST.
