The Learning Program is an educational program developed by the Down Syndrome Foundation of Orange County (DSFOC). It serves as a platform for sharing literacy and math instructional strategies, resources and activities to improve academic outcomes for students with Down syndrome, equipping families with the knowledge and tools to work effectively at home and at school. Visit our calendar to learn more.
There will be a total of 8 sessions held on Saturdays between October 2024 and June 2025. All sessions will have an in-person and virtual option (June is all virtual).
During each session, parents will receive instruction in a separate parent only class. Children will receive hands-on learning in a student class with centers that focus on literacy and math led by qualified teachers and an occupational therapist. Volunteers will also be on-site to maintain a low adult to student ratio. All in-person classes will be held at the Shady Grove YMCA, Glen Allen, VA. For the virtual option, parent-only instruction will be provided through Zoom (no student learning through Zoom). All sessions will run approximately from 9 am-11 am.
