Down’s Syndrome

The intellectual abilities of children and adults with this condition vary widely, as they do in any population. At the Vancouver Learning Centre over more than three decades we have had success in helping these learners to achieve a “personal best” based not only on their limiting condition but on the other natural skills these young people bring to the table. Over the years they have been fully integrated in the VLC community. We become their special learning place and they have achieved some remarkable outcomes.

In order for Down’s syndrome children to be included in the VLC community, they must be sufficiently verbal to communicate with others, and their behaviour needs to be compliant and safe for all faculty and other students.

If you would like to discuss your child’s individual case to see if they are eligible, please contact Vancouver Learning Centre Director Andrew Taylor at, or call 604-738-2277 to arrange an appointment for an initial telephone discussion.
