Programs for School-Aged
The DSAGSL is the only agency in the region serving individuals with Down syndrome, and their families, through the entire lifespan. This includes school-aged individuals with Down syndrome. We offer programs related to education, as well as recreation, socialization, and important life skills.
Join us on Zoom once a week, Thursdays starting September 15th from 7:00pm-8:00pm for a group Ukulele class! Learn songs everyone loves like tunes from Disney movies and hitts from the radio. The class is free to join and you can hop on anytime! Click here to join the zoom or visit our Website Calendar for more information

Bodies and Boundaries
This Bodies and Boundaries program uses simple picture cards to talk about puberty and sexuality and is appropriate for those in middle school through young adulthood. It is designed so that caregivers can continue these conversations at home and add their own pictures or drawings to the boards that were created to address the specific personal needs of their loved one.
In Session One the program uses a social story and picture cards to address appropriate touch and body safety. Participants will be able to use the social story that they worked on in this session at home.
Also, during Session One, participants will use boards and pictures that address “What I may be thinking, but must stay in my head and what I may be thinking and can talk about”. This activity is in the form of a “game” that can be used at home.
Session Two of the Bodies and Boundaries program is designed to create awareness about public and private settings along with public and private behavior using picture cards. Participants will create their own public and private boards to use at home and in the community.
