MDR Coverage on Teaching with Handicaps
In this German video on “DS Englischlehrer” from the MDR, published in 2012, you will get an insight of how English language teaching with Down syndrome is possible. The video makes clear that support, trust and appreciation are some of the most important pillars in order to become a full member of society and in professional life.
