Here is what people had to say about our Annual Conference:
“We gained helpful insight for fielding potential medical issues we may face, resources for staying current on cognitive development research, introductions to wonderful new parents who inspired us by their courage, a glimpse of the broader MDSC organization at the awards luncheon, encouragement by the honorees' community awareness and involvement, personal connection with DADS and so much more!
“There is a great feeling of empowerment and education throughout the day.”
“[It was] very inspiring to spend the day within such a tight knit community!”
