Who are Learn and Thrive?

Learn and Thrive are a charity dedicated to supporting learners with Down’s syndrome and other additional learning needs to access specialist support to help them learn and thrive. They provide online tools to support those learners who may require different strategies and approaches to learning, using digital tools to empower children and adults to thrive throughout their lives.

We have made resources available in collaboration with Learn and Thrive to use alongside their Teach Me Too videos. You can access the Teach Me Too Project and other digital learning projects and tools via the Learn and Thrive website.

What is Teach Me Too?

Teach Me Too is a free, online video library, focusing on early learning concepts, language, and skills, engaging the children with fun topics and learning through play. The videos are produced by specialist teachers and speech and language therapists and are specifically designed to support the learning profile of children with Down’s syndrome.

Teach Me Too and Special iApps

We're thrilled to be partnering with Learn and Thrive to bring you Teach Me Too resources to support further learning and understanding of the language and vocabulary used in Teach Me Too’s Early Years curriculum videos.

To consolidate knowledge our children need concepts approached in a variety of ways, that's why Learn and Thrive are determined to support different strategies of learning to best suit your learner’s needs.

This collaboration will give many of you another avenue to help your children and young people reach their full potential. Both Special iApps and Learn and Thrive have a common goal of striving to empower our community to provide a better future, so this collaboration allows us to provide a toolkit of resources to support learning and development.
