Following the success of the First Annual NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit, NDSS has chosen to take the 2019 NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit on the road. We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit will take place April 4 – 6, 2019 in Detroit, MI.

The incredible response from attendees and speakers has been overwhelmingly positive, reflecting the sentiment that this long over-due event is important to self-advocates, their families, caregivers and professionals who support them. After the triumph of our inaugural Adult Summit, we excited to open the Request for Speakers for the 2019 Adult Summit.

NDSS and the Adult Summit Planning Committee is seeking proposals for sessions geared towards parents, siblings, professionals, caregivers and self-advocates.
