Adult Continuing Education (A.C.E.) is an academic program designed for adults with special needs to maintain and improve their skills in reading, writing, and math.
The A.C.E. program provides academic tutoring in reading and math to individuals with Down syndrome ages 18 and older for 90 minutes per week. An informal assessment is performed by our A.C.E. Program Director, Oralia Lara, to determine the student's academic level and the necessary intervention. Additionally, Oralia provides training and orientation for the volunteer tutors and prepares the tutoring lessons. All sessions are provided on a complimentary basis as a part of the services of the Down Syndrome Association of South Texas.
If you are a person with Down syndrome and would like to participate in the A.C.E. program, please submit this application. If you have any questions regarding the program or if you are interested in becoming an A.C.E. tutor, please contact Oralia Lara, the A.C.E. Program Director, at 210.349.4372 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
