About the Lab
Through a generous grant from the Kirkpatrick Foundation, DSACO provides a more personal educational experience with new HP, touch-screen computers and numerous software programs such as ABCmouse, TouchMath and edHelper. Each program was chosen to enhance the learning process for children with Down syndrome outside of the classroom. For example, ABCmouse seeks to “build a strong foundation for future academic success by providing a comprehensive and engaging online curriculum.” This program also tracks the individual progress of each user.
DSACO also offers FREE tutoring to children (age 3+), teens and adults with Down syndrome on weekends. Subjects being offered by our tutors include reading, math, spelling/handwriting and keyboarding. Students can bring their own homework or can be tutored with pre-planned lessons available at the office.
Weekend tutoring will be offered from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. the first and third Saturdays and from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. So that we will know how many tutors are needed, students will need to sign-up for each session they plan to attend.
DSACO wants to provide every child and parent with equal opportunity to achieve personal and academic goals. Therefore, learning center and tutoring are a free service available to individuals with Down syndrome of all ages.
