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.
