Educator Conferences

A Collaboration with the National Down Syndrome Congress, Center for Outreach & Education

DSF collaborates with the National Down Syndrome Congress to deliver educator-specific conferences across the country. These one-day conferences are designed for educators working to enhance outcomes for their students with Down syndrome, autism, and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Practical in nature, each conference works to support identification and implementation of strategies applicable to K-12 classrooms, including effective reading interventions, differentiated and universally designed curriculum, technology, and behavioral practices. Attendees leave equipped with ideas, tips, strategies, tools, and solutions they can implement in the classroom.

Organized for just-in-time independent learning, educators can earn CEUs/professional learning credit through Texas Christian University (TCU) for conference participation. 


  • Expert Perspective – on-demand presentations by a national expert.
  • Learning Activities – directed learning experiences to facilitate educator understanding for next day application.
  • Resources, Tips, & Tools – solutions for educators to use or adapt for the specific needs of their classroom or learning setting.
