Down Syndrome Association of Orange County was thrilled to partner with the Down Syndrome Foundation and UC Irvine’s School of Education to bring the Down Syndrome Education International Conference to Orange County this past Saturday, February 1, 2014.

With more than 300 attendees who pre-registered, and additional people registering that morning, it was a packed house full of parents, grandparents, siblings, caregivers, educators, therapists and more!  Presenters, Sue Buckley, CPsychol. OBE. and Becky Baxter CertMRC SLT were amazing, and provided information, tools, and food for thought to all who attended.

We would like to thank our conference sponsors, the Pujols Family Foundation and Union Bank.  Event donations were contributed by Bella’s Kitchen in Orange, and Trader Joe’s.  We appreciate your support – Thank you!
