Congratulations Tassin Family

This year the Tassin family was chosen to represent DSAA at the 43rd Annual National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in Phoenix, Arizona held on June 25th - 28th, 2015. They were accompanied by our self-advocate, Tony Pointek and Board Member, Molly Guidry. The NDSC Convention included more than 60 topic-specific workshops, sharing sessions, a film festival, social events, networking, dances and much more. This Convention is a great opportunity for families to gain knowledge about topics specific to Down syndrome as well as meet other families and speakers from across the United States.
