Fall Math registration opens

August 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Building math skills for individuals with Down syndrome increases independence in their school, in the community, and in the workplace.  The aim of this program is to help promote a positive experience of learning mathematics with a sound foundation of basic number understanding.  

Our program is built based on the ways in which individuals with Down syndrome learn best.  Knowing that our participants vary greatly in their abilities and challenges in comprehensive math, we combine multiple approaches that utilize multi-sensory teaching. Graduated levels of purposeful progressions lead to an increase in skills and self-confidence. These methods are aligned with topics taught in the classroom, to provide a comprehensive and cohesive program.  Students can start in our program as early as age 3 or any year after that. It is never too late to start!  Weekly lessons last 45-60 minutes for 10-12 weeks at a time. Family members attend each tutoring lesson and leave with practical activities to continue learning at home. 

 

Students and Tutors can complete the registration application here.
