Online workshop: Behaviour and Down Syndrome

 

A special invitation from the Down Syndrome Association of Hamilton


The Down Syndrome Association of Hamilton, in partnership with the Down Syndrome Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, is pleased to announce an online presentation on a topic of great interest for many of our members and associates: BEHAVIOUR.  We are excited to collaborate with Dr. David Stein, Psy.D.,  Co-Director of The Down Syndrome Program.  This workshop takes place Thursday, December 10th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm EST
 
“Behaviour problems impact 30% of children with Down syndrome. Left untreated, these same children often exhibit behaviour problems as adults, limiting work and independent living opportunities. Many typical behavioural management tools are less effective for children with Down syndrome. In order to address behaviour problems in DS effectively, one must understand the brain-based reasons for these challenges and direct treatment/interventions appropriately. This workshop will present the basic neuroscience of Down syndrome and how this informs effective behaviour management, with practical strategies provided for use in the home and school settings.”

We are providing TWO alternatives to participate in this workshop:
