National Down Syndrome Congress Family, Individual or Self-Advocate Support Opportunities

The National Down Syndrome Congress hosts an annual convention for families, medical professionals and people with Down syndrome. Each year DSACO offers monetary assistance to individuals, self-advocates and families to attend the national convention. Although we currently have funds to send a few families, it is our goal to be able to send many more families, as well as medical professionals and educators, to this inspiring conference. This year’s convention will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 11– 13. Thousands of people attend this convention annually to hear about the latest research and information on Down syndrome, to go to parent sharing sessions and educational workshops, to see old friends and meet new ones, as well as to just enjoy hanging out with others involved with Down syndrome. Supporter benefits are the same at all levels and include:

• Receive a video thank you from the family
• Logo on community partners’ page
