Each spring, over 600 people with Down syndrome, their family members, health care professionals and educators from across New England attend our Annual Conference on Down syndrome. Participants gather to hear the latest research findings and timely information from national and local experts on a range of topics related to Down syndrome. They also share stories, celebrate victories, advocate for acceptance and inclusion, and reunite with other MDSC families. The conference features presentations that will appeal to families with young children through adulthood; families with children who have complex medical needs and autism; and teens and adults with Down syndrome. In addition, there will be presentations that will appeal to educators, medical professionals, and siblings of individuals with Down syndrome.

Looking for a team mate to play with at school? “Count Me In!”
Looking for a friend who will not judge you? “Count Me In!”
Looking for someone who will stand up for what’s right? “Count Me In!”
Interviewing candidates for a job opportunity? “Count Me In!”
Changing the world with a can-do attitude? “Count Me In!”

For 2017, the theme for the MDSC and our Down syndrome community in Massachusetts is - you guessed it - COUNT ME IN!

Our community includes individuals with the full spectrum of interests and abilities, people of all different cultures and backgrounds, individuals with unique viewpoints and personalities. What ties us together? Ultimately, all people with Down syndrome and their families want to be COUNTED and deserve to be INCLUDED.

So COUNT US IN!

We are positive. We are diverse. We are accepting. Help us bring our 2017 theme to life this year:

-Make your voice COUNT
-Let your friends, neighbors, teachers know that we’re COUNTING on them
-Help us COUNT the progress we’ve made over the years (and consider how much further we have to go)
-Join us as we COUNT up to our 33rd Annual Conference, our 4th Annual Advocacy Day, our 21st Buddy Walk & Family Festival, etc.

And together, we’ll help the world understand the math that really COUNTS - that the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome that defines Down syndrome adds up to a better world for everyone.
