Down Syndrome Association of N. Va.: Teaching Parents and Educators

Cashpoint Car Title Loans offers fast money for lien-free vehicle titles from its store locations in Delaware, Virginia, and Kansas. In business since 2006, Cashpoint offers fair value for cars, trucks, and other vehicles. As a small, community-oriented business, Cashpoint Car Title Loans and its holding companies, including Dominion Management Services and Dominion Management of Delaware, generously support local nonprofit organizations, among them the Down Syndrome Association of Northern Virginia (DSANV).

Devoted to helping individuals with Down syndrome and their families, DSANV maintains a number of programs designed to directly assist children and families and to raise awareness and understanding about this genetic condition. One of the organization’s core initiatives, The Learning Program, draws from 30 years of research performed by Down Syndrome Education International.

First implemented in California in 2004, The Learning Program educates parents and teachers on how to effectively teach students with Down syndrome. People with Down syndrome often excel in social skills, visual learning, and reading; however, they typically struggle with speech and language. DSANV runs monthly instructional sessions on using evidence-based educational techniques that help children with Down syndrome improve in the areas that most often challenge them. The DSANV’s Learning Program offers teaching solutions for children ages 2 to 10 years.
