World Down Syndrome Congress 2018

The World Down Syndrome Congress, held every three years, takes place this year at the SEC in Glasgow, UK. It runs from 25th to 27th July, with over 1,000 delegates expected to attend.

wdsc-2018-logo.pngThe congress brings together people with Down syndrome, their families, and professionals working in areas including education and health. There will be a wide range of plenary sessions, workshops and presentations, and many opportunities for networking.

We are delighted that our proposals for two sessions at the conference have been accepted. Bev and Colin will be at the SEC for all 3 days of the congress, along with William (who will be celebrating his 13th birthday) and Joseph (now a medical student).

Here are the session details, with links to the abstracts:
