The Older Toddler group helped him to separate from me. He learned routines and continued to develop social and play skills.
He started preschool when he was three. Ryan spent his last year at ACDS in their Integrated Class – this class includes children with disabilities and learning challenges along with typical children. The Integrated Class is outstanding and did a great job of preparing Ryan for kindergarten. He graduated from ACDS in June 2010.
In September 2010, he entered kindergarten at our local elementary school. Ryan had a strong foundation when he entered kindergarten. His teachers and therapists were amazed with his abilities. We as parents, of course, are so proud of him.
We are happy to have ACDS’ support and guidance and will always be thankful for ACDS and their commitment to children with disabilities.

With your support, we can continue to assist children and adults with Down syndrome, Autism and other developmental disabilities and their families.
Your contribution can make a difference to a child and family, just like those families in the stories above.
