The Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress hosts two major conferences annually that draw participants from across New England and beyond.
Our Annual Conference has been held every March for more than three decades at the DCU Center in Worcester. Our Annual Educators Forum at Holy Cross College in Worcester is now in its 2nd decade.
These conferences allow the MDSC to reach out to teens and adults with Down syndrome, parents, grandparents and siblings of children with Down syndrome, therapists and educators. Conference participants are treated to presentations from national and local experts on a range of topics related to Down syndrome at each stage of life.
Both of our annual conferences promise to be uplifting, informational, and educational and ultimately serve as a catalyst for collaboration with our partners in education, business, public and social service. For many participants, the most meaningful aspect of attending an MDSC conference is the connection they make with the larger Down syndrome community. We hope you will join us!
