GiGi’s Playhouse Madison has suspended all in-person programs and is closed to the public. While the Playhouse is physically closed, we are still working for our families and participants, planning new programs, and are checking our voicemail (608) 709-1411 and email madison@gigisplayhouse.org.

NEW: Online programs are now available for GiGi’s At Home – LIVE and ON-DEMAND.

Lock Laces® and GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Centers have partnered to showcase the many different kinds of warriors there are in this world.

Girl with Down Syndrome

Our Newest Program

Dynamic Duals, a program created and piloted as a collaboration with GiGi’s Playhouse Madison and the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society (MADSS), is a monthly program designed specifically for families and individuals with a dual diagnosis of DS-ASD and/or sensory or behavioral challenges. Parents meet in one area to connect, have fun, share successes, resources, and strategies. Participants engage in activities specifically designed to work on improving communication, easing transitions, supporting motor skills, and exploring the sensory world based on individual needs and preferences. Siblings can join participants in activities that match their interests or choose other options. Our focus is creating relationships, working on individual goals and ensuring participants feel comfortable and safe in our environment.
