Andy and I traveled to Pittsburgh, PA for the annual National Down Syndrome Conference. Each day we walked to the convention center where Andy and the other attendees had a personalized daily schedule full of activities and seminars. Some of his favorites were the music and yoga sessions. For family members and others traveling with a loved one there were a wide variety of seminars to choose from. My favorite was a session with LuMind IDSC who is focused on research and developing treatment for Alzheimer’s in both the Down Syndrome and general population. The highlight of the trip has to be the Saturday night dance where everybody was out shaking what they got!
