Early Childhood Education

Individuals with Down syndrome are diverse learners and develop at their own pace. Research has demonstrated that people with Down syndrome can achieve and benefit from rich academic opportunities and therapeutic interventions in environments conducive to their individual educational needs. It is important for parents, educators and service providers to maintain high standards and expectations for youth and adults with Down syndrome.
