Princeton 6th Annual Down Syndrome Conference Information

| October 7, 2012 | 0 Comments

Princeton Disabilities Awareness is hosting the sixth-annual Down Syndrome Conference on Sunday, November 18, 2012.

During the conference, all children with Down Syndrome under the age of 21 (and interested siblings) attend a carnival with a personal Princeton University student volunteer. The carnival hosts a variety of activities including a scavenger hunt, sports, interactive stories and games, and other stations run by Princeton student groups. Volunteer to child ratios are usually one-to-one. All volunteers are trained and receive individual information on their specific child. There is also a nursery for all children under the age of 2.

While the children are attending the carnival, their parents are invited to hear speakers who are experts in different aspects of Down Syndrome. This year, some of the topics to be discussed include: teachers using inclusion strategies, technology, social opportunities for children with Down Syndrome, and Early Intervention. In addition, there will be an exhibit hall with various organizations that provide resources and support for families of children with Down Syndrome. Suggestions for speakers and exhibitors are more than welcome!

Complimentary brunch is provided for all attendees.
