Kid Scene

Kid Scene

Kid Scene is for kids with Down syndrome, ages 4 through 7, and their siblings (in the same age group).  The kids participate in social activities one Saturday or Sunday per month.  The activities, dates and times vary depending upon the particular activity for that month.

Cost is normally free or no more than $5 per event/per person.  Detailed information for each activity/outing can be found in the newsletter, through the UPS for DownS e-group, or our online calendar.

These are not drop off events.  A parent or responsible adult must attend with the children.

Kid Scene events are intended to promote friendships and social opportunities amongst the kids with Down syndrome.

Why does my friend with Down Syndrome act differently than other kids?

People with Down syndrome have difficulty with language and talking.  Many kids want to interact and play with their friends, but don't know how, are afraid they won't be understood, or afraid they will be told "no, you can't play". Some kids with Down syndrome get overwhelmed when too many things are going on at the same time.

Do people with Down syndrome grow up?

Yes. In adulthood, many people with Down syndrome have jobs, go to college, live independently, and support their communities. People with Down syndrome bring to their jobs enthusiasm, reliability, and dedication.
