The “Family and Community Partners for Inclusion” group will meet on the 1st Thursday of each month from 6:00-8:00 pm. This group will work with like-minded families who are interested in pursuing a successful inclusive education for children with Down syndrome by becoming educated on best practices, legal guidelines, school conferences and ARD meetings in order to form a network that will be helpful to families.
