Getting to Know Your Students

Want to get to know your student with Down syndrome better?  Invite your student's parents to complete DSG's All About Me Booklet so you will understand the best way to engage your student.  You might also consider a Peer Presentation to help the students understand more about their fellow student who has Down syndrome.

Paraprofessional Support

Wondering what a para-professionals role is in the classroom? Review this great newsletter which outlines para roles.

Parent Communication

Home-School communication is critical to helping a student with Down syndrome succeed academically and socially.  See some sample communication logs here and here that your IEP team may consider implementing.
