We offer free presentations to educators and local school districts, community groups, and others to build understanding of the needs of students with Down syndrome. Presentation topics have included: Down syndrome 101, Behavior 101, All About IEPs, Inclusion, and Social-Emotional Development. To request a presentation for your team, school, or district please email us.
Our annual conference takes place each Fall. Topics change from year to year so we can provide you with the most up-to-date educational practices. On October 11, 2023, our workshop was held on Inclusion and Universal Design for Learning. Become a member here to receive information about our next education conference.
Our annual World Down Syndrome Day Activity Kit program provides a way for teachers to facilitate a discussion about Down syndrome on or around World Down Syndrome Day (3/21). These kits include a hardcover book featuring a character with Down syndrome or inclusion, discussion questions based on the book, educational resources about Down syndrome, and a hard copy of the activities to share throughout the school.

Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions you may have on your child or student’s education. We are able to provide support on a variety of topics such as behavior, classroom modifications, inclusion support, supporting literacy and math skills, and more.
