About Us

PREP breaks down barriers for children with Down syndrome so they can live

active and included lives in their communities. We do this through our therapeutic

and educational services, family supports, and educator supports. We believe that

if children with Down syndrome have the right tools and appropriate environments

for success, they can go on to accomplish incredible things. 

We begin our relationship with families when their child with Down syndrome is first

born and invite them to our Early Learning program. This is a play-based weekly 

meeting that introduces families to resources and therapies designed to promote early

intervention for success. We also offer a multidisciplinary ECS program (PUF funded)

that provides the skills necessary to successfully transition to Kindergarten. For our 

older children, we offer a number of therapeutic and educational services, including 

speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, behaviour therapy, and

reading instruction. For our teens, we have a classroom based program focusing on 

independence skills, self-advocacy, regulation, and communication. 

We also offer a range of workshops, webinars, and guest speakers to build the 

confidence and knowledge of our PREP families. For educators, we offer a range of

workshops to help them create successful inclusive environments in their classrooms.

We also offer individual consultations and resource development for teachers, education

assistants, and administration. 

At PREP we see every day the incredible accomplishments our children with Down 

syndrome can achieve and we are proud to support these incredible families.
