Going to School Book – inclusion for children with Downs syndrome

The second book in the Looking Up series published by the Cornwall Down’s Syndrome Group (CDSSG)

We are proud to announce the next book in our series “Going to School”, a pictorial story from our members showing youngsters at primary school. This is a follow on from the “Looking Up” book which depicts a photographic journal from a number of our members from birth to 5.
