The Learning Program is designed to supplement traditional education. Through this program, we hope to 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. The program arms parents to serve as capable advocates for their children in the educational process. Parents enrolled in the core program attend one monthly instructional session while children attend simultaneous monthly sessions with a teacher, occupational therapist, and speech-language pathologist, which focus on skill development for literacy, math, language, and fine motor skills. Parents receive materials to work with their children at home or at school.
