DSAT Pal Programs


Keeping with the importance of building social networks, DSAT is extremely excited to offer our new « DSAT PAL (Play and Learn) Programs ». The PAL programs will offer various events and activities to help develop and nurture a social network while learning and having fun with peers.


PAL 05 (Ages 0 to 5)
Through the DSAT PAL 05, our children will establish friendships that will be sure to last a lifetime. DSAT’s Saturday morning play group offer parents an opportunity to socialize with other parents of children with Down syndrome while their children play and interact with their peers. Siblings are welcome to join. All playgroups are held at Kidnetix Play Centre Address: 100 Bridgeland Ave. Unit#1 North York, ON M6A 2V1

PAL 612 (Ages 6 to 12)
DSAT PAL 612 is designed for children with Down syndrome to nurture friendships in a fun, social setting. Places will be chosen to encourage appropriate socialization, play, and interaction for all children. Siblings are welcome to join in on the fun, and build friendships with other siblings as well. Parent involvement will be hands on while sharing in the company of others.  For 2014/2015 DSAT will be expanding their Saturday morning playgroup to include children up to age 12.  All playgroups are held at Kidnetix Play Centre Address: 100 Bridgeland Ave. Unit#1 North York, ON M6A 2V1

Additional PAL 612 events will be announced throughout the year. Stay tuned and check our website for upcoming events.

PAL 1319 (Ages 13 to 19)
This unique PAL 1319 program is designed for teens with Down syndrome to meet new friends, gain independence and develop life skills through fun, social outings with other teens with DS. Each outing will be organized, led and fully supervised by the DSAT PAL 1319 team consisting of parents, professionals and volunteers. Such outings will include, but not limited to movies, bowling, dinner, etc. and will occur once a month throughout the year.

Ages 15-39 with developmental delays and their friends are invited to Just Dance! It’s wheel chair friendly!
