- The suggested age range is from late teens through early 20s.
- The student must have a Down Syndrome diagnosis.
- Students participating in the program must demonstrate the ability to participate in a non-behavioral setting (i.e., they must not present with aggressive or self-injurious behaviors).
Note: It is the policy of the Step by Step program that the parent or guardian must be on site at all times during the student's class. The parent or guardian is responsible for the behavioral management of the student. It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to ensure that their child is able to safely participate in all lessons. In case of an emergency, the parent is responsible for the child’s behavior. At any point, if a participant's behavior is unmanageable, the participant will be asked to leave class.
