Workshop proposals and submission

Practice Workshops 

Do you and/or your team do good work with people with Down’s syndrome?  Does your work give great results and benefits for people with Down’s syndrome?  Do you think it could be replicated by others?

If you can answer “yes” to these questions, we’d like you to run a workshop about it!  Our international audience of people with Down’s syndrome, parents, carers, practitioners and medics want to hear about effective work in other countries, so they can take back ideas to their own.

If your work is targeted at people with learning disabilities and includes several people with Down’s syndrome, we’d still like to hear from you.

You can work in any discipline ie sport, youth work, education, health etc, just click the button below to complete a proposal form.  

We are particularly keen to hear about practice that helps to ensure inclusion for people with Down's syndrome into society.

Available Audio Visual Technology

Each room comes complete with a screen, data projector, laptop with sound, built in CD player and memory stick slot; there will also be a lectern with a built-in microphone. In larger suites, there will also be a top table with microphones, plus a roving microphone. Wi-Fi will be available in all rooms. Technical support will be provided by the venue.
