The NZDSA in October will celebrate its 40th anniversary by hosting the largest Virtual Down Syndrome Conference ever organised in this country, to coincide with World Down Syndrome Month.
The New Zealand Virtual Down Syndrome Conference will be offering a huge variety of high-profile Kiwi and international expert speakers who will cover a wide range of topics including education, health, speech, relationships, ageing and legal issues.
The NZDSA has hosted many conferences, seminars and workshops during its history, but geographical and financial restraints often restricted the number of people who were able to attend.
All those barriers have now been removed by modern technology and the new digital skills we have learned during lockdown.
With modern video conferencing technology, there is no reason to miss out so keep an eye on our newsletter and Facebook page for dates.
The NZDSA is in the process of finalising the programme and will share the experts, the topics and dates once they are locked in.
To get all this information, make sure we can send you our newsletters, so please register your details on the NZDSA website FOR FREE, at www.nzdsa.org.nz
And if you do happen to miss a webinar of your interest, many sessions will be recorded and made available as a valuable future resource.
The NZDSA is non-for-profit charity that receives no Government funding and fully depends on grants and donations, so when you register or think the webinars are of value to you and your community, please remember to make a donation, so we can continue to offer these services to raise the awareness and knowledge around Down syndrome.
