Down Syndrome Educational Alliance

The Down Syndrome Education Alliance strives to provide information, training, resources and supports by partnering with Bay Area educators who work with students with Down syndrome. We offer information regarding the general learning profile of individuals with Down syndrome and research-based best practices for educating them. The Alliance offers direct training, consultation, ability awareness presentations, and access to our curriculum, AAC and print libraries.
