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.

Can I help my Friend?

Yes! Play with and talk to people with Down syndrome. If they are having trouble playing a game, give them time and a little extra help or ask them what game they would like to play. Be clear in what you are saying. Find out what your friend likes to do. Just hang out together and see what happens. You are more alike than you are different.
