The idea of ​​the booklet is Down facilitate learning of concepts related to communication and logical reasoning

The non-governmental organization Movement Down, in partnership with the Post Office, launched on Friday (27), a series of booklets to help parents and professionals in sports and games adapted for children with Down syndrome. The material, called TO Play (Occupational Therapy), has pedagogical proposals to facilitate the learning of concepts related to communication, logical reasoning and body perception. The collection was developed in conjunction with the Institute of Pediatrics Martagão Gesteira, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), will be available for free download on the website of the organization.

The project is born from a need for training and information of people who work with children with Down syndrome. We've been working and developing commercial games from that look. So we think this game as one that has more physical accessibility, visual and communicative, said project coordinator TO Play, Miryam Pires.

For Miryam Pires, the main obstacle faced by parents is the lack of knowledge about how to educate the child. We workshop for families, professionals. We bring children into the care here in IPPMG [Institute of Pediatrics Martagão Gesteira]. We have about 50 children at work here.

The coordinator of the Movement Down, Deborah Mascarenhas, said the family care is done on the internet. Contact via the portal, we have around 3000 families welcomed in a year and a half. We have 45,000 followers on Facebook. Then, directly or indirectly, that content arrives in Brazil and abroad. Has 25 countries besides Brazil, accessing the portal of the movement, he said, adding that the organization was established in March 21, 2012, when Brazil celebrated the first International Day of Down Syndrome.

The actor Breno Viola, who has the syndrome, highlighted the importance of the project. It's great to be contributing together with TO Play. The materials are adapted for people with disabilities, said the actor, who appeared in the film Buddy, the adventures of three young people with Down syndrome.
