Welcome to the Educators page

All individuals with Down syndrome are lifelong learners just like every one of us.

It is very important to presume competency and have high expectations when educating individuals with Down syndrome. Research has shown that effective academic interventions and inclusive education are cornerstones of effective education plans for individuals with Down syndrome so they can attain their educational goals, be gainfully employed and be fully contributing citizens in the community.

Our services, here at the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center are devoted to helping individuals with Down syndrome get access to appropriate education, from birth to adulthood, so that they can reach their maximum potential.
