Tea at Grandma’s

Inclusion for children with Down’s syndrome

The third book in the Looking Up series published by the Cornwall Down’s Syndrome Group (CDSSG) will be available March 19th to celebrate World Down Syndrome Awareness Week (19th – 25th March 2018). 

In collaboration with Helen Laverty & Positive Choices Network, CDSSG have created “Tea at Grandma’s” which focuses on the important role of the often unsung heroes that are the grandparents, who can have “double the worry” for their own child and for their grandchild when a diagnosis of Down’s syndrome is given.

The aim of the book is to create a similar positive narrative as previous books, but this time from the lived perspective of current grandparents speaking to new grandparents or grandparents to be.

The book can also be shared with family, friends and siblings to remember old adventures and start new ones as families come to terms with unexpected news.
