Our next meeting is Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 6:00pm in the lower level conference room of the Hooper Building (36 Broad Street, Oshkosh). We will be watching Video on Protocol. "A combination of drugs recommended for depression and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder is being widely promoted as a "treatment" for Down syndrome. There is no scientific support for the routine use of this protocol for people who have Down syndrome. It is important that families and healthcare professionals are aware of the lack of evidence for safety and benefits from use of this protocol." DOWN to Earth is not endorsing this program, only providing information. Please contact Sharon ASAP email@example.com if you need childcare provided for this meeting.
Adventures in Music is offering specialized classes for children with special needs. Classes start January 23rd.

Learning Through Song: Music for Special Needs
Ages: 2-6 years
Classes: Thursdays 10:20-10:50
Children will experience the joy of music making while learning both musical and non-musical skills. Taught by a music therapist trained in adapting for a variety of ability levels, this class will target cognitive, physical, and language development. Social interaction, auditory comprehension and turn taking will be facilitated through a multi-sensory approach which is highly motivating and success oriented. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your child is not in this age range but you feel they may be a good fit developmentally. Siblings and typically developing peers are welcome. They will be provided with opportunities for skill development in addition to being given the opportunity to serve as a peer model and teacher assistant.
Down to Earth
Our goal is to build awareness, sustain a network of support and provide information for families with children who are "differently-abled" in the Oshkosh and surrounding areas.
