We are thrilled to announce that the Ames Family Foundation has generously invested $25,000 in the development of a reading assessment tool for our students with Down syndrome.
This tool will measure individual student progress, and provide aggregate data for the reading program as a whole.
These performance measures will be used to isolate variables that contribute to optimal learning (ie. age, frequency, intensity), which will help DSRF further refine our reading program to achieve the greatest impact.
Please join us in thanking the Ames Family Foundation for making this exciting project possible!
2016 was a year of tremendous growth for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, as we added staff and brought our programs to new cities in order to serve the Down syndrome community more widely. And as always, our students were the real stars of the show; their achievements made it a year to remember. Read all about it in our 2016 Annual Report: The DNA of DSRF. Or, view our 2016 Donor Listings. Our audited financial statements for 2016 will be posted shortly.
Thank you to every individual and organization that invested in individuals with Down syndrome in 2016!
