Our approach comes from the understanding that every learner is an individual with unique strengths and interests, and that learning is optimized when these preferences are incorporated into individual program development. Our high quality programs are taught by a skilled, experienced, multi-disciplinary team and are backed by the results and insights observed through continuous program evaluation.

The outcomes for individuals with Down syndrome can be maximized by providing opportunities for rich social connections with family and friends, participation in the community, optimal health care, as well as the opportunity to learn through instruction that is tailored to the profile of the learner. Our aim is to assist in the development of children into adults who are confident, self-reliant, resourceful, socially connected, and able to make positive contributions to their community. At the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation, our educational programs are designed to enhance the skills that will support full social inclusion. We do this through a focus on four key areas: speech and language, reading and communication, social and emotional development, and enhancing the life skills that will foster maximum independence.
