Learn about functional, independence and social skills in the areas of speech, OT, and PT for children with Down syndrome in school and everyday life.
Launched in October 2014, the Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands (DSA) Education Series (DSES) is an educational seminar for families of children with Down syndrome.
Each month, a speaker experienced in the field of Down syndrome comes to discuss education, healthcare, or research on the disability to DSA members and Omaha families, hoping to positively impact the well-being of their children. The series was created as an unconventionally-formatted conference and will bring in speakers that one could expect to find at one of the major 3-day DS conferences across the nation.
DSA families, educators, therapists, healthcare workers, students, and other professionals are invited to attend.
Sessions are free but please register on the DSA event calendar. Sessions are held at 6:30 PM at the University of Nebraska Omaha unless otherwise noted on the DSA calendar.
The program received a Global Down Syndrome Foundation Educational Grant and continues to receive funding from local philanthropists and corporations.
