Building Strong Foundations for Educational Success
One of the best gifts you can give your child is a great foundation when entering school. DSG invites you to apply for the Learning Program, which will help you better understand the academic learning needs of children with Down syndrome.
Your attendance will help you develop a learning station at home, build an instructional routine, increase your child’s stamina for academic tasks and increase your child’s reading vocabulary with 120 words by the end of the nine sessions.
Tuition is $200.00 for nine classes.
Sign-up for Session 1 OR Session 2
Take a Peek at Our Classroom!
DSG believes your child has unlimited potential and a very bright future! One of our goals is to help you be first-teachers for your children.
The Learning Program was created by the Down Syndrome Foundation of Orange County to bridge the gap between research and practice. Although researchers continue to discover more about how people with Down syndrome learn, their insight has been slow to filter to parents and teachers.
The Learning Program is designed to supplement traditional education. Despite some wonderful teachers, traditional education too often fails children with Down syndrome due to poor educational placement, lack of trained assistants and outdated stereotypes.
Through this program, we hope to strengthen the educational potential for children with Down syndrome, irrespective of their formal educational setting.
