Empowering Educators: DSAV Outreach Program
  • Educators play a crucial role in the lives of individuals with Down Syndrome, shaping their educational experiences and fostering their growth. The Down Syndrome Association of the Valley's outreach program is dedicated to providing valuable information about Down Syndrome to families, as well as teachers, administrators, aides, and board members.

Providing Accurate Information
  • Our outreach program aims to ensure that all parents and educators receive accurate, up-to-date, and well-balanced information about Down Syndrome. With the abundance of information available on the internet, it can be overwhelming to navigate through it all. That's why part of our mission is to curate quality resources from trusted and credible sources, providing families and educators with the information they need to support individuals with Down Syndrome effectively.

Resources for Families and Educators
  • Through our outreach efforts, we have compiled a comprehensive set of resources tailored for both families and educators. These resources cover a wide range of topics, including educational strategies, developmental milestones, and support services available for individuals with Down Syndrome and their families.

Speaker Engagements
  • DSAV is pleased to offer speakers for conferences, meetings, and training sessions upon request. Our knowledgeable speakers are available to share insights, best practices, and personal experiences to support educators in providing the best educational services possible for students with Down Syndrome and their families.

Empowering educators is key to ensuring the success and well-being of individuals with Down Syndrome in educational settings. We are committed to providing the support and resources necessary to help educators make a positive impact in the lives of their students and families.
