Students with Down syndrome regress at alarming rates during the summer when school is not in session. That often means the first few months of each school year are spent relearning previously introduced concepts.
As a result, DSACK created the Summer Enrichment Program. Students work with a special education teacher, reading interventionist, art teacher and music therapist throughout the six-week program.
Summer Enrichment Program instructors teach using a holistic approach, incorporating cooking classes, physical activity, music and art. Students also maintain a routine similar to their classroom schedules during the school year, ensuring they transition more easily into their school routine when summer break is over.
