Advocates in Motion

mdsc.pngI’m thrilled to welcome new guest contributor Suz. A proud Boston mama to two kids – one who was born with Down syndrome – Suz will provide content on resources and ideas for “differently-abled” kids. Today, she shares information on a new networking program sponsored by the MA Down Syndrome Congress; the kickoff event is this Sunday at the Waltham YMCA.

“The Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress (MDSC) is launching a new program called Advocates in Motion (AIM), this Sunday, April 27 from 1 - 4 PM at the Waltham YMCA. AIM is a monthly networking program for teens and young adults (ages 13-22) with Down syndrome; the program will include fostering of social networking skills, recreational and athletic events, skill-building activities such as public speaking or cooking, and development of employment and community service skills.

The kickoff event this weekend will feature multiple activities to choose from, and the chance to make some great new social connections. One attendee will win a new iPod Shuffle! Teens and young adults, parents, and brothers and sisters are all welcome to attend. Click here to register for the event.”
