Educator Webinar Series 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 and teachers for a comprehensive 8-part webinar series designed to maximize successful classroom participation for learners with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. This series is for classroom teachers, resource teachers, education assistants and other professionals who work in the school setting.

You can register for the entire series for $200, or choose individual sessions for $30 each. Each webinar is 1.25 hours and takes place from 4:00-5:15 pm Pacific Time (5:00 pm MST, 6:00 pm CST, 7:00 pm EST, 8:00 pm AST).
