We are parents of children with Down syndrome who have found the support of other parents to be priceless in navigating our children’s educational journeys and the IEP process. Each child with DS has her/his own unique educational needs. While we may not be trained advocates and lawyers, we are here to share information, resources, and our experiences to help you become a better advocate for your child. We can share experiences to answer questions such as:
My child is 2 years old. What should I know about the school and IEP process?
What are my child’s schooling options?
My school district says “xyz.” Is that true? What should we do?
How can I get Speech and OT for my child through the school district?
Can I get my child in full inclusion?
We meet the 1st Wednesday of every month from 6/7 pm Pacific Time on Zoom to chat with you about your IEP questions and concerns.
