Parents and self-advocates are encouraged to attend NDSS, NDSC, and other out-of-state conferences that support the mission of our organization. Members may apply for reimbursement of up to $250 per family per year for out-of-state conference fees only. The conference need not be DS-specific, but must have a component that will benefit the individual or family, such as education tools, behavior skills, health & wellness for individuals with disabilities, or advocacy training.
While NDSC and NDSS conference fee reimbursements are very likely to be approved, not all applications will be. Taken into consideration is whether the topics have been or will be covered by the Down Syndrome Education Series.
