Kids with Down syndrome share the same desire to learn and discover as their typically developing counterparts. But their educational journeys may be different, depending on their needs.

Expect ups and downs, trials and errors – but take heart: there is a classroom for your child in Chattanooga. And we want to help you find it, so we’ve compiled a database of teachers, counselors, schools and facilities that have been highly recommended by at least one DSU family.

Please keep in mind that we’re not advertising or endorsing any person or place on this list. If you have specific questions, or if you’d like to add to our database, [contact us.]
