Information Sessions

The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte provides informational sessions for parents, caregivers and professionals in our community to educate them on issues that may be of interest or helpful in raising their loved one with Down syndrome. Recent sessions have covered topics such as Special Needs Financial Planning, Toileting Skills, Early Intervention, Segregated Classroom, Inclusion-Based Classrooms, Oral-Motor Placement and more. All Member Meetings are free of charge and are typically held on Saturday mornings. We provide child care on site.
