Down Syndrome Inclusion Support Service 2015 Registrations are Now Open!  

The Down Syndrome Inclusion Support Service (DSISS) provides direct support in the classroom for teachers to assist with practical teaching issues such as curriculum adjustment and positive behaviour support to improve the learning outcomes for students with Down syndrome and their classmates.

The approach taken is always collaborative; the teacher is the expert in the individual classroom, whereas Down Syndrome Victoria has extensive expertise supporting students with Down syndrome. The DSISS education consultants work alongside the teacher to identify the resources and strategies that will best suit the particular needs of their student, the teaching style of the teacher, and the culture of the classroom.

T4321 – Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day

T4321 (an inventive abbreviation for ‘Tea for trisomy 21) is held throughout the month of March to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day (March 21) and the lives and achievements of people with Down syndrome. To celebrate the occasion and to raise funds for Down Syndrome Victoria, members and supporters can host local fundraising and awareness events throughout Victoria.

The concept incorporates hosting a morning or afternoon tea with friends, family and colleagues to collect donations to support the work of Down Syndrome Victoria. To register your event, please visit the T4321 website by clicking here. Whether big or small, all funds raised can be donated through this fundraising platform. All monies raised will assist Down Syndrome Victoria to provide vital support services to individuals with Down syndrome to achieve a lifetime of meaningful inclusion in the community.
