Join other parents, caregivers, and educators to learn how to create and use visual supports from Megan DeBoom, our Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and our Director of Therapeutic Services. Megan is one of the only Down syndrome specialized BCBA’s in the nation! There is so much to learn from Megan’s experience working with people with Down syndrome across the lifespan, who have a vast diversity of needs, strengths, and personalities.


In this caregiver education seminar, you will learn proactive strategies for supporting your loved-one with Down syndrome. Megan will highlight visual supports that promote:

  • greater independence
  • smoother transitions
  • more positive social interactions

Megan is passionate about equipping caregivers with tools that lead to a less stressful day-to-day in the home, school, and community.

Child Policy at Education Seminars:

We strive to create a professional learning environment for all adults who attend our educational sessions, and in respect of the speakers providing their expertise to our community. Therefore, the minimum age that one is allowed to attend our conference educational sessions is 13 years old. Other children are not allowed, with the exception of babies in arms (approximately 12 months or younger), who can be quietly cared for by a parent or legal guardian. We ask that parents please use their discretion when deciding whether or not to bring their child to a seminar. If a child is disruptive to other attendees, and the parent or guardian is not voluntarily leaving the room, the parent or guardian will be asked by a staff member to leave the room with the child until the child can quietly return to the session.

Inclusion of Teen and Adult Self-Advocates:

Per caregiver discretion, teen and adult self-advocates are welcome to attend educational sessions with their caregiver. You are welcome to notify DSI staff if your loved one needs accommodation for optimal learning.
