We are pleased to invite you to participate in the pilot of our online version of The Learning Program™. The Learning Program™ utilizes current research on best practices and effective teaching strategies to improve educational outcomes for children with Down syndrome.

The LP Online Pilot will consist of four sessions from our Level 1 class offered through Webex in live or recorded formats. Level 1 is for parents of children wtih Down syndrome between 3 and 6 years who are interested in support with vocabulary expansion, sight word acquisition, sentence building, personalized materials, and early math.
Caveat - these sessions are offered throughout the nation through our Learning Program Partners. If you are already participating in a Learning Program group, these presentations may not provide you with new or different information.
