The DSRF Difference

In a recent survey of DSRF families, 85% of respondents said that the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation provides support they cannot receive anywhere else. What does this mean?

DSRF offers a level of Down syndrome expertise unmatched in Canada. Our caring therapists and teachers are Down syndrome specialists who work almost exclusively with individuals with Down syndrome and have a deep knowledge of the unique learning strengths and needs of this population. Our team members truly appreciate and understand the individuals and families with whom they work.

DSRF is a one-stop-shop for Down syndrome, or as one parent put it, "a boutique of supporting our son for success." DSRF offers a wide variety of programs, services, and resources, including speech therapy, occupational therapy, one on one reading and math instruction, mental health and behaviour services, group educational and recreational programs, digital and video resources, a magazine, a podcast, and more – all under one roof.

At DSRF, we are proactive, evolving our programming and services based on our experiences working with clients and students, as well as the latest research and best practice. We take an individualized approach, tailoring our lessons to the strengths, interests, and needs of each person. As a result, students are empowered. They have opportunities to grow, learn, and step into whatever success means to them.

DSRF's Pricing Philosophy

The Down Syndrome Resource Foundation is a non-profit organization and registered charity. We believe that finances should never prevent any individual with Down syndrome from receiving the support they need to flourish. 60% of our annual operating budget comes from fundraising revenues, with just 40% generated through program fees. This allows us to offer all our programs and services at below market rates. In addition, DSRF has a robust Financial Support Program, providing financial assistance to families in need. Families with total household gross income up to $125,000 are eligible to receive financial assistance, and we encourage all families to apply. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
