Transitioning to secondary?

We have information sessions coming up this May to help families make informed choices during this important transition stage of a child's education.

Attending a local group is also a great way to share information about services and facilities in your area.


Early Days Workshops

These workshops are produced by Down Syndrome Australia in association with Learning Options for the Better Start Program.

 Empowerment & Inclusion

Employment

“Employment can offer many more advantages to a person with Down syndrome than simply a source of income. Work gives structure, a sense of purpose, feelings of competency and pride whilst offering an opportunity to learn new things and meet new people.”



The Inclusive Classroom

Our Education Support Service (ESS) is a classroom based support service for teachers providing practical assistance and resources, improving learning outcomes for students with intellectual disabilities and their classmates.



Sport and Recreation

When sourcing recreation activities for your family member with Down syndrome it's important to consider mainstream/generic options as well as disability options. This will open up many more opportunities for your family.
