Mission

To increase positive awareness of Down syndrome through national campaigns, educational programs, and by empowering individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community.

Description

GiGi’s Playhouse Atlanta is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources, therapeutic classes, specialized teaching and support to families of T21 (Trisomy 21/Down syndrome). Everything at GiGi’s Playhouse is FREE: occupational and physical therapy, tutoring and family support.

The T21 population share common obstacles: sleep apnea, hypotonia (low muscle tone), weak mouth skills, low sensory awareness, nutritional deficits. If tackled early, these challenges can be managed and overcome. Early intervention works. Classes at GiGi’s Playhouse are styled for therapeutic play to develop speech and language, social development, fine and gross motor skills.

Our literacy program builds a foundation from the beginning in four main areas: articulation, sight word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension. Tutoring is conducted one-on-one over 12 weeks with a 94% graduation rate to the next literacy level. T21 is a diagnosis of hope and one that with a little early intervention, a normal and independent life is possible.
