Volunteer Opportunity: Tutoring Lab
DSACO offers FREE tutoring to children (age 3+), teens and adults with Down syndrome on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. DSACO employs a fully certified special education teacher who pus each child on an individual plan and shares progress with parents. Subjects offered include reading, math, spelling/handwriting and keyboarding. Students can bring their own homework or can be tutored with pre-planned lessons available at the office.
DSACO needs up to five tutoring aids at each tutoring session. The head tutor will show you what to work on with your assigned student. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Previous educational experience is a bonus, although not required.
