A large conference with nationally known speakers is typically scheduled annually. Some of the conferences that have been held have focused on social issues, healthcare, behavioral issues, sexuality, abuse prevention, estate planning and education techniques. We are devoted to providing pertinent educational opportunities that empower our membership and community to become better educated about people with Down syndrome, the challenges they face, and how to help these individuals achieve their life goals. Workshops are held based on needs expressed via periodic surveys completed by the membership and community at large.
Smaller Scale Workshops and Talks
Periodically, we schedule workshops and talks that cover topics related to Down syndrome in the areas of parenting, education, healthcare, recreation, therapies, self advocacy, sibling issues, behavior, and life planning to name a few.
To view our upcoming events and educational opportunities, please see the calendar at the bottom of our webpage.
