BENEFITING: DOWN SYNDROME EDUCATION USA
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Up for The Challenge?
What: A challenge to bring Down Syndrome Education USA to Southern Maryland to present a world-class education conference to educators and families with children with Special Needs.
When: NOW! We plan to book the conference for Fall 2014 and we are getting close to our booking amount!
Why: Conferences like this one are necessary to better the outcomes for children with special needs. Families need the information to help further their child's education and development as do educators. The information presented at the conference has been thoroughly researched and applied in inclusive classrooms around the world. Bringing this conference to Southern Maryland would be a giant leap forward for the education of children with special needs in the surrounding school systems. We would like to be able to offer free conference admission for all families with a child with special needs who want to attend and all special educators in the tri-county area.

We will celebrate this effort at the Fabulous with 47 4.7K and Kids 1K Fun Run at Woodlawn on Sunday, November 3! All are welcome!
We have added a self-advocate speaker, Mr. Adrian Forsythe, to this year's post-race festivities. He will be speaking about his experiences as an individual with Down syndrome. Adrian is a wonderful example of what a young person with Down syndrome can do given support and education. We are very honored to have him speak at the race.
