The Learning Program is designed to supplement traditional education.
The Learning Program is designed to supplement traditional education. Through this program, we strengthen the educational potential for children with Down syndrome, regardless of their formal educational setting. The program focuses on parents as first-teachers for their children, bringing the results of research into practice. Knowledgeable parents can work more effectively with their children and give them a jump-start on education beginning as early as age 2. The program also enables parents to serve as capable advocates for their children in the educational process. Parents enrolled in the core program attend a monthly instructional session. Children simultaneously attend a monthly session with a teacher, OT, and SLP to focus on skill development in literacy, math, language, and fine motor skills. Materials are provided monthly, allowing parents to reinforce targeted skills at home.
When: Monthly on the second Saturday a month and continuing throughout the year for ten meetings from September to June.
