The UpsideDowns Education Trust helps kids with Down syndrome learn to talk, read and write by funding speech language therapy. We create empowered, communicative kids.


Over 250 givers have collectively raised $123,541.66 for UpsideDowns. That has funded 2,059 hours of speech language therapy for children with Down syndrome across Aotearoa New Zealand.

What we do

We help fund speech language therapy for kids with Down syndrome all over New Zealand. We know that with the right support and tools, children with Down syndrome can learn to talk, read and write.

We support families to access the special education services they need to get the most out of their children and enable them to reach their potential. With these skills, our kids attend mainstream school, make friends, and later in life, live independently and gain employment. Without this therapy, children can struggle to integrate in their schools and communities, and frustrations will arise.
