Education Specialist Program

The DSAGSL is proud to highlight our Education Specialist Program! The Down Syndrome Education Specialist Partnership Program is a joint effort between greater St. Louis area schools, agencies, parents and the DSAGSL. The goal of the partnership is to provide support for educators, parents and professionals seeking to build a meaningful education for students with Down syndrome. This FREE four-part workshop begins in September and provides 20 hours of meaningful training as well as continuing education units. Please encourage your child’s teachers to register by September 4th. Contact for more information.
