NORTHWEST DOWN SYNDROME ASSOCIATION AND NORTHWEST DISABILITY SUPPORT
RECIPROCAL LEARNING COMMUNITY
Network of families, educators and health professionals who help parents of children with Down syndrome become informed, empowered experts on their children’s development and wellness. Parents, with the assistance of an advisory board of professionals, choose the topics and plan each session. All sessions are research-based and utilize current best practices. Concurrent childcare sessions, run by qualified professionals with the help of volunteers, provide activities for children that are relevant to that session's content. Each RLC concludes with a catered lunch and time to build community with presenters and other families and professionals.

Topics covered include nutrition, behavior and positive behavior support plans, literacy, the father’s perspective, person-centered planning, preparing for meetings with school personnel, sensory procession, child development and more.
