Our monthly Parent Education sessions are provided for ALL family members, community members, and educators who are interested in supporting and working with individuals with Down syndrome. The sessions will always be held on the 1st Tuesday of every month (unless otherwise indicated).

Nuestras sesiones de Educación para Padres serán proveídas para cualquier miembro de la familia, miembro de la comunidad y maestros que están interesados en apoyar y educar individuos con síndrome Down. Las sesiones siempre van a ocurrir el primero martes de cada mes (al menos que sea indicado diferente).

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will currently provide our education programs virtually. The time of each event will be 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and will depend on the type of session and the availability of the speaker. Updates will be provided regarding the method of delivery and time of each event, so keep an eye on the website and social media for these updates.
