Research

At DSRF, we investigate best practices and initiate and participate in research studies to gain better comprehension of the learning styles of individuals with Down syndrome.

Using targeted behavioural assessments and brain imaging, we are gaining new insights into how people with Down syndrome see the world around them and process information.

These studies are contributing to a body of knowledge that enables the development of practical initiatives that are particularly effective for individuals with Down syndrome: programs that maximize academic, social, health and language development.

DSRF is an independent world leader in research and education in Down syndrome, and has become a catalyst for leading researchers, educators and clinicians focused on Down syndrome.
