Following the success of the 2018 NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit, hosted by NDSS and its Self-Advocate Advisory Board (SAAB) in collaboration with the National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices (the “NTG”) and the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) to discuss important and critical topics for all adults with Down syndrome, we are pleased to announce the 2019 NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit coming to Detroit, Michigan April 4 – 6, 2019.

The 2019 NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit is open to all individuals who play any role in the life of individuals with Down syndrome with a specific focus on caregivers, family members, professionals, and individuals with Down syndrome.

We look forward to having you join us in Motor City!

Our 2nd Annual NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit will cover important and critical topics for all adults with Down syndrome. Speakers and topics will align with NDSS’ robust, comprehensive programs and pillars – including healthcare/research, inclusive education, community integration, economic self-sufficiency as well as employment and our NDSS #DSWORKS® Campaign. Aging-related changes and health issues, including Alzheimer’s disease, will also be covered.

As the life expectancy for individuals with Down syndrome continues to increase, NDSS is committed to ensuring our adults with Down syndrome, their families, caregivers and other key stakeholders have the best, most accurate information throughout adulthood.
