When our daughter, Alison was 3 years old, she participated in a research study about the ways children with Down syndrome learn. The researcher for this study was Ann Archer, who subsequently became Alison's tutor and played a key role in her learning to read.
Literacy is the largest barrier to future opportunities for people with Down syndrome. In response to this great need, CDSS is introducing a new National Literacy Program, accessible to all families in Canada who have children and youth with Down syndrome. They need to raise funds in order to deliver this program. I want to support this initiative and hope you will too.
