DSAGSL offers programs that work with Education Professionals & families in an effort to provide individuals with Down syndrome the best possible education in whichever school they find is best for them. Our mission is to be the leading resource on Down syndrome in the community, not just for families but also for educators.
Education Specialist Program
The DSAGSL is proud to offer the Down Sydrome Education Specialist Program! This Partnership Program is a joint effort between greater St. Louis area schools, agencies, parents and the DSAGSL. The goal of the partnership is to provide support for educators, parents and professionals seeking to build a meaningful education for students with Down syndrome. This FREE four-part workshop begins in September and provides 20 hours of meaningful training. Please encourage your child’s teachers to register for this free course. Contact Andi@dsagsl.org for more information.
The DSAGSL also offers a two-day intensive Down Syndrome Education Specialist Summer Program. The 2018 Summer Session was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who came. Check back soon for 2019 Summer dates.
Our trained parent, professional and self-advocate ambassadors are ready and willing to come present current information on Down syndrome and Ability Awareness. Contact the DSAGSL at Andi@dsagsl.org to schedule a speaker for your school or organization or to become a trained speaker yourself!
