EIDS Office- 1675 S Woodruff, Idaho Falls

We are excited to offer reading tutoring again this summer for individuals with Down syndrome. There are nine spots available so if you want a spot do not wait! Here are the details:
Who: Individuals with Down Syndrome
What: Tutoring in reading (we have a researched-based program for Kindergarten through 2nd-grade level and then other great research-based materials for 3rd-grade level and above)
Where: EIDS Office- 1675 S Woodruff, Idaho Falls
When: 6-week session, Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 14th- July 28th (with taking the 4th of July week off). Sessions are 45 min long. They start at 9:00 am, 9:45 am, and 10:30 am.
Why: We know that long breaks make it hard for our kids with Down syndrome to retain all of their knowledge from the previous school year. We want to help bridge that gap.
Cost: $240 per child (must be a registered member of EIDS to be enrolled in the tutoring program)...we will contact you for payment once we get your registration
More Info: It will be required that the parents do about 15-20 min of reading practice with their child two other days in the week. We will give you the materials for practice and it will be very clearly laid out for everyone,
If you have any questions please reach out to Mary Murray at 208-520-9900
***We understand that there may be a session or two that is missed. The price is still the same regardless of sessions missed.

Christ the King Parish Hall and Field

We are excited to announce that we are having our first summer camp for individuals with disabilities called Summer Camp for All. We are partnering with the ISU Occupational Therapy program to offer a daytime summer camp for three days, July 18-20. The morning session will run from 9 am to 11:30 am and is for children 5 to 12 years old. The afternoon session will run from 12:30 pm to 3 pm and is for anyone with a disability who is 13 years and older. The camp will be held at the Christ the King Parish Hall which has plenty of parking and great outdoor grass space. It is located at 1690 E 17th Street, Idaho Falls, 83404. There are only 25 spots available for each session so don't wait to register!

At the camp, the campers will get to have fun doing sports, obstacle courses, water fun, crafts, games, and dancing. There will be snacks and water throughout the camp day. ISU OT students will be with the campers to help and assist as needed. For the morning session with the 5-12-year-olds, a parent/caregiver/worker needs to stay. They will not be expected to be involved in the camp, they may work on their own things in our designated caregiver area. For the afternoon session with 13 year and older campers, it is not necessary to have a parent/caregiver/worker stay, but a waiver must be signed for the parent/caregiver/worker to leave.

Each camper will get a t-shirt and will be well supported at the camp. The cost is $25 per camper. Please email info@easternidahodownsyndrome.org with any questions.
