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 and work with your student.  Check out the list of Common Accommodations for Students with Down Syndrome and Tips for Working with Individuals with Down Syndrome (for paras or support professionals).

Parent Communication

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