2018 See Me Beautiful Parent and Educator Conference
See Me Beautiful 2018
The 21st Annual Conference on
Educating Students with Down Syndrome
Tuesday, November 6, 2018
Canad Inns Polo Park
This one-day conference is designed for educators, parents and community members who are passionate about supporting a person with Down syndrome! Participants will develop skills and knowledge to support the learning, communication, and behaviour needs of the people in their lives who have an extra special chromosome.
We will discuss the learning profile of people who have Down syndrome and what that means for how we need to adapt our communication and teaching style. Most importantly, we will share ideas for how to build on your child’s unique strengths to work towards success and independence.
Participants will come away with ideas and resources to help their students/children/clients communicate more successfully throughout the day. We’ll also learn about the principles and strategies of Positive Behaviour Support – a valuable approach to helping people improve their behaviour so they can participate, learn, and be included.
