First and foremost, thank you for all your hard work and for caring about our children. It is appreciated. Click below to download helpful tips and information that you can use in the classroom and share as training information for staff working with students with Down syndrome.

DSACT is dedicated to providing information and materials that empower you to teach your students with Down syndrome. As you plan your approach, remember to focus on their ABILITIES versus disabilities.

If you believe people with Down syndrome can learn, they WILL!
