To help our children -- and adults -- fulfill their potential to speak, and speak more clearly, DSACT is proud to announce that it will launch a Speech Therapy Program in January 2015. Our program will be low-cost and open to individuals with Down syndrome in the Central Texas area who, with a family member, meet eligibility criteria. Funding for this program has been made available by RGK Foundation, through a generous grant. Thank you RGK Foundation!
The Learning Program™ provides parents with the understanding of the learning profile of children with Down syndrome along with training and materials to help supplement traditional education. Direct instruction for parents is provided with emphasis on literacy, math, language, fine motor, and social skills. Additionally, parents will receive an array of best practices, resources, and tools for teaching their children.
