DSG East Centre....great first day of opening

The first speech therapy sessions with Voices for Down Syndrome Galway began in DSG East Centre today.
We were delighted to meet so many of our excited members & their families, they have left us with lots of lovely memories for our Tree.

We really want the DSG East Centre to be a place for everyone to meet, socialize, have fun, attend information events, classes, therapy sessions...Really the possibilities are endless. We would love to hear your ideas & suggestions as to what you want from the centre.

Don't forget that we are still looking for participants from Tús, with the required skills, that would like to make a Self Referral, to assist us in the centre as a Receptionist.
