International Multiple Birth Awareness Week


 

This event is being celebrated from 4th – 11th November 2012.  The theme is “School Placement of Multiples – to Separate or Not?”

This is a question that has been debated for many years and every year, parents around the world face the question of whether or not their multiples should be kept in the same classroom, or separated into different classes. This year we hope to draw the spotlight on this issue, and provide some guidance for parents and educators.

On the ICOMBO website, you will find some documents that may be useful for you to use and you can also visit our Twins Tips for information on Twins & Multiples at School.
