We are excitedly looking forward to the 17th Annual Youth & Adult Conference. If you would like to help plan the conference or have a great idea for a workshop, please contact Catherine by email, catherine@dsamn.org or by phone (651) 603-0720.


For the 16th time we gathered a wonderful group of teens and adults with Down syndrome for a day of learning, sharing and fun. Planned and presented by Association self advocates, our annual Youth & Adults conference has become, for many, the peak event of the year – a day of their own, filled with precisely the kinds of activities they want.

It was that and more – it became a day filled with opportunities to create, ask questions, explore answers, look forward to being safer in our communities, more successful at work and healthier all of the time. The day was capped – as always – with the Youth & Adults dinner dance where one and all rocked ‘n rolled to their heart’s content.

Workshop topics include:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Creative Communication

  • Understanding Sexuality
  • Staying Safe Online
  • Chi Kung
  • Scrapbooking
  • Staying Safe in your Community

  • Planning a Vacation
