All Saints Episcopal Church, 8787 River Road

Presentation on the survey from the VCU Survey and Documentary Film Grant including an overview of findings and a film clip.

VCU received a grant to illustrate the needs and aspirations of people with DS and bring about improvements in knowledge and access to community resources. Kayla Claxton, BS, Genetics Counseling Student with the Department of Human & Molecular Genetics at VCU will present. (30 minutes)

AND

“Providing Supports to Children with Disabilities in the General Education Classroom” by Chris Frawley, M. Ed, Program Specialist at VDOE’s Training and Technical Assistance Center (T/TAC) at VCU and also a DSAGR Board Member.

Children with Down syndrome are increasingly being educated with their typical peers in the general education classrooms. Access to the general education curriculum means more than being present in a general education classroom. Students with disabilities need to be provided with the supports necessary to allow them to benefit from instruction. This presentation will review the characteristics of these supports in terms of how they can help lead to a child’s success. Ms. Frawley will also provide an overview of T/TAC’s mission, programs, resources and training opportunities for educators and parents.
