Participants from countries across the globe meet, share knowledge, experiences and perhaps open new frontiers in improving the lives of people with Down’s syndrome.
The Congress focuses on Panchtatvas – Social Awareness & Self Determination, Health, Education & Employment, Support System, Rights and the Law for people with Down’s Syndrome.
The Congress opened with the world premiere of ‘Langdon Down, The Legacy’: a short film about the extraordinary Victorian building in London which is home to DSA UK. Built by Dr John Langdon Down in 1868 as a place where people with learning disabilities could be cared for and educated, it is widely regarded as the ‘spiritual home’ of Down’s Syndrome.
