Nothing Down About It! is a FREE professional development seminar to educators throughout our service area. This webinar provides techniques on educating children with Down syndrome that can be used for all learners. The webinar can be offered anytime upon request either virtually or in-person for one hour of professional development hours.

Please contact us if you have any questions or are looking for additional resources or information.
