Sound the drum roll… it is Down Syndrome Awareness Month and we here at DSACO are so excited to launch outreach focused on school communities! Different classrooms around our twenty-three county service area were nominated by parents, teachers, and community professionals to receive an awareness package. This year, we are delivering packages on behalf of 84 students with Down syndrome to 74 different classrooms in Central and Southern Ohio. Each package consists of some age-appropriate books, a poster, and some goodies! It is our hope that these packages will spark conversation and help spread awareness.
While the deadline has passed to request a package for this school year, we hope to see even more requests for this awesome awareness initiative next year.
