Empowered Educators Program

DSF currently supports educators through LP Online and sharing of free educational resources. However, we are working with the National Down Syndrome Congress to create the Empowered Educator's Program, an online learning experience geared specifically towards educators. The learning modules will demonstrate ways to further include students in the general education curriculum through effective literacy interventions, differentiated curriculum, technology, and instructional practices.

Based on the face-to-face Learning Program, LP Online™ equips participants with the knowledge and tools to work effectively with students with Down syndrome in home and school settings.
