Each year, thousands of people from across the globe attend the National Down Syndrome Congress Annual Convention. For most, it’s to hear the latest information from world-renowned experts. For others, it’s a great vacation. However, for nearly all, there’s the one-of-a-kind NDSC “giant family reunion” feeling that permeates the convention weekend.

This year’s convention is June 27-30, in Pittsburgh, PA. The weekend is comprised of several different conferences and programs and is designed for parents and family members, self-advocates (individuals with DS), professionals, and community advocates.

Of special note this year, the convention will feature a college fair for self-advocates on Friday, June 27. Colleges from around the country have been invited to come and share their options for students with intellectual disabilities. Think College is very pleased to co-host this inaugural event! We are all looking forward to a robust group of exhibitors, as well as an excited group of students looking to #ThinkCollege!
