Education Resources

Welcome New Members

The vision of the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis is to be the most comprehensive resource on Down syndrome. We envision a community where all people with Down syndrome can achieve their full potential. Benefiting the lives of individuals with Down syndrome and their families through education is a big part of our mission. Below is a list of resources regarding education. Feel free to reach out to us if there is something specific you are looking for or need further assistance!

Awareness Packets & Presentations

We have put together several resources designed to help schools raise awareness about Down syndrome, and promote inclusion within the classroom and throughout the school.  Additionally, we offer presentations that can be adapted for students of different age groups, as well as for educators and school staff.

We celebrate all students with Down syndrome in all learning environments, and ability awareness benefits students with and without disabilities, educators, and staff. 

Packets include handouts such as 

  • Facts About Down Syndrome and Person-First Language Guidelines
  • Inclusion ABCs and Book Recommendations for All Reading Levels
  • 10 Ways to Raise Awareness and Awareness Posters to hang up around the school
  • Information and resources about visual schedules and helpful technology
  • And much more…

There are two forms below, a packet request form and a presentation request form. For packets, please allow for USPS shipping times. For presentations, we will reach out to you as soon as possible to make arrangements.

THANK YOU for being a DSAGSL partner!
