Fall 2021 Educator Webinar Series 

November 16 - December 9, 2021

Educators play a crucial role in setting the stage for the healthy development of children with Down syndrome into adults who make positive contributions to their community. By guiding appropriate behaviour for successful social interactions in the classroom and school community, incorporating knowledge about communication strengths and challenges into daily routines, and using successful strategies for teaching children with Down syndrome to engage in academics, we are teaching skills that will optimize the potential for full social inclusion. 

Please join DSRF speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and teachers for a comprehensive 8- part webinar series designed to maximize successful participation in the classroom and community for learners with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities.
