A large conference with nationally known speakers is typically scheduled bi-annually. Conferences 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.
Smaller Scale Workshops and Talks
Periodically, we schedule smaller scale workshops and programs 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.

Types of Conservatorship, Power of Attorney vs. Conservatorship, the process and so much more! This is a workshop you are not going to want to miss, especially if you have a young adult nearing or at the age of 18.
To enhance the quality of life for all people whose lives are touched by Down syndrome.
