Can you believe we’re already half way through January?! At DSAGT we’ve been busy planning and preparing to make 2020 our best year yet!
These past few weeks we’ve been meeting with each one of our 17+ county boards to introduce ourselves and share more about DSAGT’s programs and services. It’s our first step to ensure that we are reaching as many families as we can and working to find ways to best serve them. We hope that through these meetings we can collaborate with our county boards to make DSAGT programs and services more accessible to our families all across Northwest Ohio.
We’ve also been busy this month with some new and returning DSAGT programs. This past week we had our first session of our Cooking Matter’s class. This is DSAGT’s second year partnering with the Promedica EBID Institute to bring this program to individuals over the age of 13 with Down syndrome. For six weeks, participants will be learning about basic nutrition, cooking skills as well as kitchen safety.
We’re also excited to announce DSAGT’s newest program “Down with the Beat” Music and Movement!” DSAGT is partnering with BeInstrumental to provide a music and movement class for little ones with Down syndrome between the ages 1-4. We will be hosting a preliminary workshop acting as the pilot for the program. Parents will be introduced to the various benefits of music for their child's development while their children engage in motor play and then everyone will gather for some music and some fun! For more information and to RSVP please visit our calendar.
Lastly, we’re excited to bring you our 2019 Annual Report. Last year was a big year for DSAGT. We saw the hiring of our second full-time employee, went through a major change in leadership, collaborated with Promedica to bring a Down syndrome clinic to Toledo and so much more! You can read more in our report here: DSAGT Annual Report.pdf.
