CONFERENCE FOR PARENTS

** **

There are still a limited number of places left at our conference for parents of babies and young children with Down syndrome, taking place on Tuesday, the 13th of November in Limerick.

Are you a parent of a baby or young child with Down syndrome? We are delighted to announce that we are running a conference in Limerick to support you and your child. The day will look at themes such as supporting positive behaviour, optimum nutrition, entitlements and the Access and Inclusion Model and more. Our early intervention officer Eimear will also be on hand to offer support, advice and answer any questions you may have.

To book your place, please visit our website here: https://downsyndrome.ie/…/parent-information-workshop-day-…/.

We also plan to roll out further events around the country during 2019 in order to best meet the needs of families. Any questions or queries can be directed to eimear@downsyndrome.ie.
