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 (Adolescent 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.

How to Support Students with Down Syndrome

The Human Development Institute has created an online course that will introduce you to the general characteristics of children with Down syndrome, outline what inclusion means, and then describe how you can include children with Down syndrome in your early care and education setting. There is a $5 fee to download the course. Learn more here

DSG is here to help!
