Information sharing will include:

  • ·         2014 National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC) Convention debrief – hosted in Indy and was super!

  • What is a Self Advocate?
  • Preparing for the 2014/2015 school year
  • Your input on future topics and speaker suggestions based on what’s important to you

Past MFDSN activities have been great resources for families and included a panel discussion with some of Indianapolis’ leading health care practitioners, backyard picnics, family-to-family support for challenges that arise during your loved ones life span (IEPs, medical appointments, stress, puberty, etc), and a holiday adopt-a -family party.
