Education

Everyone needs a little help. Angels with Down syndrome and their families are no different. Sadly, sometimes good help can be hard to come by, especially for angels. For years, individuals with Down syndrome have been grossly underestimated. Negative perception and misunderstanding have led to lowered expectations, marginalized potential and limited opportunities, most notably in education. The majority of children with Down syndrome have only gained access to formal education within the last 30 years. Recent strides have been made. Still, an astonishing number of private schools will not accept individuals with Down syndrome, and far too often public options lack the priority, capacity or resources worthy of angels. Help is needed. Angels in Disguise contributes in-kind to schools, organizations and programs that effectively cater to inclusive and unhindered Down syndrome education. We also provide individual scholarship to families in need. Every angel deserves the finest educational opportunity to enhance their quality of life, realize their aspirations and reach their full potential.
