Down Syndrome Research Forum 2023

The Down Syndrome Research Forum will be held online on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th April 2023 and is hosted by Down Syndrome Education International.

The Down Syndrome Research Forum is a regular international event where researchers, students, practitioners, and families meet to discuss current research and practice, and learn from each other. Once again, the forum will be held online following previous success, and for the convenience of attendees and presenters.

Presenters will be asked to present their work to attendees in live sessions delivered over video-call. All sessions will be recorded to enable participants who are unable to attend the live sessions to access content later.

The keynotes this year are:

  • Working memory in Down syndrome: Causes and consequences, Professor Chris Jarrold, University of Bristol, UK.
  • Speech development in children with Down syndrome - significance and interventions, Professor Emerita Carol Stoel-Gammon, University of Washington, Seattle, USA.

If you are new to the Forum see the dedicated page for further details.

We hope you will join us in April - the Forum grows each year and is a great place to make links. Please pass on to colleagues who may wish to join us.
