The PREP Program is a resource centre of excellence dedicated to the inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome in home, school and community life.

We are a registered, non-profit organization founded in 1988 by a registered Speech Language Pathologist.  The PREP Program now provides a wide variety of services and resources to individuals with Down syndrome in the Calgary area and we welcome visitors from out of town, province, and country.

About PREP

Our dedicated staff are here to support families along their unique journey of parenting a child with Down syndrome. We are there for the challenges and celebrations! PREP students learn that  “It’s OK to have Down syndrome” and to take pride in themselves. Our goal is that each becomes a contributing member of the community, enjoying all the rights and responsibilities that being a caring, contributing member of the community entails.


Please explore our website and Facebook to learn more about the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome. 


Each program at PREP has a dedicated section of the website with contact information. Our program coordinators welcome your emails or phone calls.


In addition to weekly programs parents can also register for private speech-language therapy (PDF File) or reading tutoring (PDF File). Appointments can be weekly, biweekly, or occasional depending on your child’s needs.
