We offer a wide variety of educational opportunities to children and young adults with Down syndrome, including ground-breaking reading and communications programs, speech therapy, music in motion, summer school and transitions programs which prepare our students to live full and fulfilling lives.
Going forward, there remains considerable scope to expand our reach to further support and assist people with Down syndrome and their families.
