After 19 years, the Down Syndrome Association has decided that we need to change up the Youth & Adult conference a bit. The first big change will be that we are moving the conference date to September 2015. Spring time is just packed with too many fun sports, proms, graduations and weddings!
The second big change, that we are very excited about, is that the conference will now launch a monthly teen and adult workshop series. Each workshop will be one to two hours, depending on the topic. The fall series will be all about relationships – coworkers, friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, marriage and an age specific workshop on understanding sexuality. The winter quarter will cover health topics such as exercise and nutrition. In the spring we will cover Independent Living topics like first aid and transportation.
We are also pairing the workshops for teens and adults with related topics for parents and caregivers
As always, we would love to hear any feedback or ideas you might have to share with us about this exciting new venture or would like to serve on the planning committee! Please email Catherine at email@example.com or call (651) 603-0720
