Educator Package

As many of you already know, CDSS has a resource available for parents, teachers, education assistants and all others who are involved in the education of a person with Down syndrome. The Educator Package helps educators and parents in their journey towards a fully inclusive classroom.

It features information on inclusive education, tips on how to best support students with Down syndrome, and real life stories of inclusion from a student with Down syndrome and from a teacher.

Visit our online store to get your copy today. Inclusive education will make Canada a better place for all.

Also good for the school year is Mind & Body: Answers To Your Questions. It is a great resource for self-advocates and teenagers with Down syndrome who may have questions about relationships, sexual health, safety, and growing up. The book was developed in consultation with various organizations and groups in the fields of sexual health and disabilities. For more information about this resource, click here.
