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.

Bodies and Boundaries

THE PROGRAM: The Bodies and Boundaries program is designed so that care givers 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.

SESSION 1: The class will use a social story and picture cards to address appropriate touch and body safety, and 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”

SESSION 2: This session is designed to create awareness about public and private settings along with public and private behavior using picture cards.

DETAILS: This class is appropriate for those around 8 years old and up. Please note that parents/guardians are required to be with their loved one with Down syndrome during the class. Materials for the class will need to be picked up at DSAGSL, or we will need at least 1 week notice to mail out materials.

The Fall Session will be Monday, September 11 & Tuesday, September 12 form 6:30-7:30 on Zoom
