Event Overview

The Congress programme is designed to provide delegates with a range of speakers giving different perspectives on Down’s syndrome. Our aim is for it to be informative and to encourage debate amongst delegates through plenary sessions, selected workshops and presentations. All these offer delegates a chance to look in more depth at examples of new or emerging research and good practice, as well as hear the exciting developments in the lives of people with Down’s syndrome.
