About the Presenter

Kim Yaeger, Head Teacher, Founder, President

I began my journey with Down syndrome as an educational assistant for a young student with Down syndrome. Students with Down syndrome have a unique learning style. I wanted to understand his learning profile to guide his success in learning. At this time, I was introduced to Down Syndrome Education International (DSE). I read every research overview they had. The research fascinated and inspired me. After extensively researching Down syndrome education, I developed a strong passion for implementing the research into children’s lives. It became clear to me that I was called to execute the studies into a program that children with Down syndrome could access.

Little Leaf’s early intervention program started with two students in a small spare bedroom of my home. I have continued to read every research overview from DSE and have attended numerous training and accreditations that have given me expertise in Down syndrome education and early development.
