ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Behavior problems impact 30% of children with Down syndrome. Left untreated, these same children often exhibit behavior problems as adults, limiting work and independent living opportunities. Many behavioral management tools are less effective for children with DS. This workshop will present the basic neuroscience of Down syndrome and how this informs effective behavior management. Practical strategies to use with children and teens at home, school and community settings will be shared.

 

This conference is made possible through generous support from Jeremy Trau Research and Education Fund for the Down Syndrome Clinic at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
