Literacy Tutoring

Our Winter literacy tutoring program has started!

Open doors for your loved one by opening a book.  Reading leads to better speech, success at school, and opportunities in life.  Take advantage of our literacy program and get your child started reading or improve current reading skills.  Our 6 week Winter program has started.  

The focus of this program is to provide literacy support and reading instruction to individuals with Down syndrome.  Participants and tutors will be matched based on mutual availability, and will meet once a week for an hour of one-on-one instruction for six weeks.  Tutors will be responsible for creating lesson plans and assessing participants.  The Utica Public Library has resources for tutors to utilize, including an array of leveled readers and the ability to duplicate or laminate materials and make personalized books for participants.  Participants can meet with their tutor at a location and time that works best for their schedule.  


Any questions? Contact our literacy program coordinator, Heidi McManus by e-mailing her HERE or calling her at 315-735-2279 ext. 220.

Brody's Buddy Ride

Brody’s BUDDY™ Ride is a 63 mile bike ride signifying Trisomy-21.   Down syndrome occurs when there are three copies of the 21st chromosome. Therefore,  21 x 3 to equal 63 miles.  It is here that we feel, 3 copies of the chromosome, as opposed to the typical 2, is better…”More is Better”!  The ride was established to raise awareness for Down syndrome. 

The ride will start and end at Clinton school where parking will be available for bikers.

7:00 AM - Riders check-in
7:15 AM - Opening comments and prayer
7:30 AM - Bike ride begins
1:00-1:30 PM - Bikers arrive back at Clinton Schools
