Down Syndrome Specialist Program


Our Parents and Schools in Partnership Program promotes collaborative relationships between DSG and local school districts to effect positive outcomes for students with Down syndrome and their families. Special Education Directors are invited to breakfasts during the year to learn more about DSG and community resources that benefit their district and the students with Down syndrome.

A significant education connection is made as directors are encouraged to designate a staff person within the district to be the DSG Down Syndrome Specialist. The DSG Down Syndrome Specialist receives a resource binder, free registration to DSG sponsored educational events, DSG mailings and regular updates on research and best practices. They are also invited to breakfasts throughout the year to share feedback with DSG on their district’s unique needs. In some instances DSG provides individualized consultation and training for districts in need. DSG proudly partners with 45 school districts who have named Down Syndrome Specialists.
