This is a webinar for young people.

The webinar will help you looking after yourself

We have worked really hard to make it as accessible as possible and easy to follow. But support and encouragement from other family members might help. In fact we feel that everyone will benefit from this webinar during these difficult times so why not give it a try!

Join Imelda Fitzpatrick, Blossom Ireland Programme Director and Behaviour Specialist and Ellie Reilly, Down Syndrome Centre Occupational Therapist and learn how to schedule your day, how to create new occasions and what makes you feel good while staying at home.
