Creating Lifelong Learners – National Association for Down Syndrome Conference

The National Association for Down Syndrome holds a bi-annual conference to educate and bring the community together. Our conference attendees cover a wide group of people – including teens and adults with Down syndrome, parents of children with Down syndrome, therapists and educators.
Parents learn how best to help their children acquire the skills that will enable them to lead fuller, more independent lives and how to prepare for the transition to adulthood. Teens and adults with Down syndrome learn practical skills which improve their ability to take care of themselves. Professionals learn of new developments in Down syndrome and connect with the community.
