“The Learning Program has given me a wealth of information to help me be a better advocate for her in school and a better teacher for my child at home.”
DSAGR has proudly offered the Learning Program since 2013. The 2021-2022 Learning Program will be offered as a hybrid model.
Registration is closed.
The Learning Program is an educational program that serves as a platform for sharing literacy and math instructional strategies, resources and activities to improve academic outcomes for students with Down syndrome, equipping families with the knowledge and tools to work effectively at home and at school.
Parent sessions will be held in-person (with a virtual option) throughout the year from September 2021 to June 2022 and there will be 3 in-person student sessions. The parent sessions will be held at the DSAGR Activity and Learning Center (with a virtual synchronous option). The student sessions will be two curriculum days and one Adventure Day. In the curriculum days, parents come with their children to a drop-in session and rotate through various learning centers led by our teaching team who will model the instructional approaches taught during the parent workshops. The Adventure Day will be an outdoor community activity with parent and children with a chance for parents and children to connect with each other. The dates are below.
