Down Syndrome Associations Step Up To Help Fellow Organizations
Already planning to give to hurricane relief? Now you can choose to support fellow Down syndrome affiliates ravaged by the disasters.
Join DSAIA and unite for a common cause to raise funds for Down syndrome organizations affected by recent hurricanes. By offering this aid, we will help these groups continue to offer support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families, and strengthen the greater Down syndrome community.
DSAIA Offers New Educator Newsletter Template
One of the most important "jobs" that a Down syndrome association has is providing information and training to educators. A useful tool is a newsletter created just for teachers, complete with the latest information/research and resources/tools that will help in teaching students with Down syndrome. However, at DSAIA we know that your resources are already spread thin and this type of communication can be time-consuming to create. DSAIA members are always up to the challenge, though, and eager to collaborate to bring a much-needed resource to other members.
Several DSAIA members who focus on education came together a few months ago to create our Education Newsletter especially for use in communicating with teachers and other staff. Led by Kim Owens of Down Syndrome Association of Greater Richmond, the work group collected resources and designed a product that allows for other DSAIA members to drop in their logo and upcoming events. "We hope this newsletter will help you in reaching out to the education professionals to show them that your DSA is ready to support educators with information and questions they may have about educating their student with Down syndrome," said Owens.
