Empowerment classes are offered to individuals with Down syndrome of all ages and abilities. These classes include sign language, kitchen skills, physical therapy, cheerleading and more! The purpose of our Empowerment Classes is to truly empower participants by learning a new skill or partaking in a new activity. Classes typically meet weekly over a six week period. We offer new classes each quarter, so be sure to keep an eye out for the ones that interest you or your loved one. There is a $20 fee per 6 week session and registration is required.
We have a wide variety of social opportunities offered throughout the year. Ongoing social activities include Community Groups, Social Clubs and Advocates in Action. However, we also offer unique get togethers every once in a while. Those include dance parties, picnics and recreational fun!
On the 21st of each month, we host an educational workshop for parents, professionals, relatives and advocates (15 & up). Workshop topics will change each month and local experts will present in their area of expertise. Some of the topics include Sensory Processing, Puberty, Healthcare Transitions and more! These workshops are free to attend, but registration is required.
Some of these resources were created by the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati (DSAGC). If you work for an outside organization or live outside the Greater Cincinnati area, please consider making a donation so we can maintain updated resources.
