Inaugural Las Vegas Down Syndrome Conference


Oct. 22, 2022, 8am to 5pm


Space is limited, so please reserve your ticket(s) early to ensure you can attend.

Registration opens at 8 a.m., the program starts at 9 a.m. 

If you are a parent of a person with Down syndrome, an adult sibling, or a caregiver for a person with Down syndrome of any age prenatal to adult, this conference is for you!

You will learn important updates and topics of interest to people in the Down syndrome community, specifically engineered to have sessions that appeal, no matter what age. This day-long conference features keynotes and three additional general session presentations by nationally renowned speakers Dr. Brian Chicoine and Dr. Dennis McGuire, as well as other experts bringing you up-to-date information, research, and new insights into all things Down syndrome.

This conference is also for you if you are an individual with Down syndrome, age 14 and up. Our experienced presenters will offer fun, fact-based, hands-on sessions for our youth and adults with Down syndrome to enjoy. The conference location is self-contained, and the self-advocate track is presented in one classroom for the day. People with Down syndrome are also welcome to opt for any other breakout sessions offered instead of the self-advocate track. General and healthcare attendees are welcome to (quietly) observe the self-advocate track as well; however, space is limited.

Healthcare Professionals (including Physicians, Dentists, Chiropractors, Nurses, Therapists, and Counselors) can attend and receive 5.0 CME elective credits through AAFP/AMA.
