Thank You Educators

Catie Aznoe

May 04, 2016

This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week and from all of us at the DSCBA, we say thank you. Through the Down Syndrome Educational Alliance, we have privilege of working with the entire education team, including general and special education teachers, paraeducators, administrators and others. We are committed to providing educators and professionals with up-to-date information and services regarding research- based best practices for educating students with Down syndrome. Our goal is to share that information with as many educators as possible so that all students, particularly those with Down syndrome, can reach their fullest potential.

When a school district joins our Educational Alliance, we train and support educator teams and administrators so that they can understand specific learning profiles, strengths, and weaknesses of students with Down syndrome. After training, each attendee receives ample pertinent information about educating students with Down syndrome. Topics addressed include behavior, communication, inclusion, curriculum adaptation, and more.

We are grateful for all the districts that have partnered with us so far and the educators who have taken advantage of the Educational Alliance and our resources to help their students reach their potentials.
