- Down Syndrome Awareness With Kathleen Forney, Part 2
On a previous episode of "Culture Clique", Kaltheen Forney, Executive Director of the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota gave us information about development and behavior issues along with strategies for supporting people that have down syndrome. In her talk, Forney incorporates what she has learned from her own experience being a parent of a thirty-three year old son with Down Syndrome. Some of the subject covered last week were the three different types of Down Syndrome, birth statistics, common myths, education and behaviors. Today, Forney's talk focuses on health care, depression, and Alzheimer's. Forney will also address questions from the audience in attendance at her talk.
