Down Syndrome Education Specialist

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.

We are proud to offer the Down Syndrome 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.
