Thursday, March 26
Facilitated by: Karen Carlson
My presentation will be a powerpoint that provides an overview of GiGi’s Playhouse Rockford as part of the ONLY nationwide network of brick-and-mortar Down Syndrome Achievement Centers. We will look at the mission and history of the Playhouse itself, as well as taking a look at historical perceptions of Down syndrome. We will move from a historical context back to present day, with an emphasis on what programs and services available to individuals with Down syndrome that inspire and empower them to succeed in life. I will also emphasize one of our main priorities, which is changing the way world sees Down syndrome, and talk about what our community can do to get involved and make a difference.
Bring a sack lunch if you like. Water, coffee & tea will be available.
