School Partnership

DSAMT provides support and training for educators, school professionals and education students to assist their efforts to provide a meaningful educational experience for students with Down syndrome.  Educators and students are never charged for this support, though the value of this program is extremely high.  Time and again, participants tell us how impactful the trainings have been on their ability to educate all students.

If you are an parent, information can be found under Education.
