Adult Education & Employment programme

Dear Branch members,

We are very excited at the possibility of running the Adult Education & Employment programme by DSI in Galway.

(More information below)

We have made contact with all the members that we have details for, to invite them to a meeting to discuss this:

On This Thursday 13th June At 8.00 In  DSG West Centre, Moycullen.

We would love you to pass this information on to anyone that you know that is or has an adult with DS and maybe interested in furthering their education.

The programme commences the beginning of October for 32 weeks from 10 until 4.00.

We have had great feedback and even though It was originally designed as a 4 day course, that isn’t very practical for everyone.

There have been many different options requested so that members can combine this programme with work/training/Education for the remainder of the week. We are happy to run with whatever days suit the majority.

Looking forward to meeting you Thursday and getting this off the ground.

If you have any questions *please don’t hesitate to call us asap.*

Hope we get to work together..

Kind regards

Deirdre Nugent 086 8719000 & Eileen Nic Dhonncha 087 286 8663
