Northeast Down Syndrome Education Conference will be held for the first time at 9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Burlington Marriott in Burlington.

Down Syndrome Education International experts will address the audience, which is expected to include over 500 educators and parents from over 25 states and six countries.

“Over the last 30-plus years Down Syndrome Education International has cemented its position as the undisputed world-leader in down syndrome education, and we are happy to bring their best practices to educators and teachers alike,” Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress executive director Maureen Gallagher said in a written statement.

Keynote speakers also include parent and self-advocate experts, such as Brendan Durkin of Newton, who will talk about his down syndrome journey.

The conference will be divided into three in-depth tracks. The early years track will focus on infants and toddlers up to 5 years old. The childhood track will discuss young children between 5 and 11 years old, and the adolescence track will concentrate on young adults from 11 years old through high school.

Registration will be held from 8 to 9 a.m. on both days.
