We are pleased to invite you to participate in 2014-2015 LP Online, the online learning community based on DSF’s 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. For more information, visit www.dsfoc.org.
This year, LP Online will consist of ten sessions from either our Level 1 or Level 2 class offered through Webex seminars in live and recorded formats. Level choice depends on the developmental stage of your learner, but generally, Level 1 is appropriate for learners between the ages of 3 and 7 and Level 2 is appropriate for learners between the ages of 5 and 8. If you have a question about which level to choose, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In general, sessions will focus on supporting language arts and math skills. Details of the montly sessions are listed below under each ticket type. Sessions are geared towards supporting parents in the educational process, but we also welcome administrators, teachers and therapists and will try to provide supplementary materials for professionals as appropriate.
PROGRAM DATES/TIMES: Except as noted for June, all live sessions for Level 1 will be at 9:00 a.m. PSTand all live sessions for Level 2 will be at 11:00 a.m. PST. In June, both Levels 1 and 2 will join a live session at 9:00 a.m. PST. Sessions last approximately 1.5 hours each. If you cannot attend a live session, you will have access to its recording for the duration of the program year.

Caveat: These program sessions are the same as those sessions which will be offered this year through our nineteen Learning Program Partners nationwide. If you are already participating in a Learning Program, LP Online presentations will use the same topics and materials. Similarly, some of the sessions have been offered at the NDSC Conference and other conferences nationwide.
Tuition includes access to monthly live and recorded Webex presentations and membership to the LP Online website, which houses links, videos and handouts. Literacy and math materials are available for purchase through our online store at a discounted rate for program participants or for free download and assembly through our website.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have questions or need to make alternative financial arrangements. Limited scholarships are available. We look forward to working with you!
