DownsEd conference in Atlanta

I had the great privilege of attending a DownsEd conference in Atlanta this week (Thur/Fri). They provided lots of great evidence-based practices regarding learning in children with Down syndrome.

There were 3 tracks from which you could choose: early years (birth-5), childhood, and speech. The speech track was primarily for SLP professionals. I went to the early years. There were 3 speakers that rotated between the rooms and the general sessions. I can't do hyperlinks when posting from my iPhone, so I'll share more info next week. Suffice it to say that I learned a lot of practical things to work on with Micah this year. And I met some Facebook and blogosphere friends! I've been given a two-day extension of my leave of absence so I will be returning home to my guys tomorrow evening. I'm hanging with some dear friends and having a great retreat.
