WE ARE an educational program offered to parents and children with down syndrome between 2-15+ Years
The LP of St Louis is a parent/child focused program that empowers parents to teach their children literacy, math and other skills using evidence-based materials and methods. The program supplements formal literacy and math education through direct instruction to parents and children with customized materials and support.
The St. Louis program is pleased to be a partner program of The Learning Program of Orange County, supported by the Down Syndrome Foundation of Orange County. As a LP Partner, we are better equipped to share methods and strategies for the cognitive development of children with Down syndrome.
This year we are excited to be expanding! We are starting our "Maren Prep" programs for teens in middle school and high school. Check out our new classes!
