Creating an After-School Routine
After-school routines can help students with disabilities make an easier transition from school - or transportation - to home; reduce tension between children and parents; and give kids a head start in the morning. Planning, and visual schedules, can be as helpful at home as they are at school.

Negotiating an Inclusive Kindergarten Placement
A quarter century after children with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities demonstrated the benefits of mainstream kindergarten for themselves and their classmates, parents are still finding obstacles to enrolling their 5 year olds in neighborhood schools with their mainstream peers.

Advocating for Inclusion - Unexpected Benefits
While many parents advocate for inclusive classrooms and community programs in hopes of giving their children the opportunity to make friends and grow up with opportunities to participate in social activities throughout their lives, the unexpected benefits of inclusion are just as valuable.

Back to School with Down Syndrome
If you are a parent or a teacher expecting a student with Down syndrome in your classroom and plan to help other students to include a classmate with Down syndrome, congratulations. Classroom supports and inclusion do benefit mainstream classrooms, teachers and their schools.

Elementary School Transition
Transitions during the elementary school years can be well planned and supported so that children with special needs may concentrate on educational opportunities, maintaining self confidence and developing healthy relationships.

Kindergarten Transition
Planning the transition from preschool to kindergarten can include visiting available classrooms before summer break, considering an extra year of preschool in a transition or mainstream program, private kindergarten or homeschooling
