What started in Southern California in 2004 as a local effort to help children with Down syndrome achieve better academic success, has grown into a national model for parent-focused educational intervention.  Working with Down Syndrome Education International, credentialed teachers, licensed therapists and professors, Down Syndrome Foundation has developed a 10 month multi-level program to improve academic outcomes.  Using a train the trainer model, DSF will have 15 Learning Program partners for the 2013-2014 session.  As news of the program’s success spreads across the country, many organizations have questions.  Join us for an informative webinar with Dana Halle, Executive Director of the Down Syndrome Foundation and founder of the program.  She will explain how the program and partnership works, and help answer questions so you can decide whether The Learning Program™ is a fit for your group?

Presented by Dana Halle:

Dana is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Down Syndrome Foundation of Orange County.  Since 2004, Dana has focused her energies on developing and expanding The Learning Program™ - a multi-faceted program that has become an award-winning national model for educational intervention.  The Learning Program is now implemented by other Down syndrome groups across the nation and the DSF website has over 8,500 registered users.  Dana attended Pomona College, where she earned a B.A. in Public Policy Analysis & Psychology and the University of California, Hastings School of Law, where she earned her J.D.  Dana practiced law as a business litigator for ten years before taking time off to parent her three children, the youngest of whom, Nick, has Down syndrome.  Soon after Nick’s birth in 1998, Dana began advocating on behalf of Nick and other children with Down syndrome and their families. 

I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
