The DSA and Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group (CIDDRG) at the University of Cambridge welcomes people with Down’s syndrome, families, advocates, health or social care practitioners, and researchers to the Research into ‘Regression’ in people with Down’s syndrome Online Conference on Tuesday 28 March, 12pm-4pm.
Many families over the years have contacted the DSA as their son or daughter with Down’s syndrome has experienced a period of unexplained loss of skills and/or changes in their behaviour. This is often referred to as ‘regression’.
This online, interactive, Conference aims to:
- Summarise our current understanding of regression and the current research available in this area
- Provide opportunities for interactions with leading researchers in this field
- Provide a space for people with Down’s syndrome and those who care for them to talk about their experiences and hear from others.
There will be three speakers at the event:
Dr Shahid Zaman
Dr Jonathan Santoro
Third speaker – To be announced
The event is completely free.
