Description:

This class covers major issues associated with the aging process for individuals with Down Syndrome.  Participants will learn about common medical, psychiatric, adaptive, and cognitive issues often overlooked or incorrectly diagnosed. Differential causes of functional decline will assist caregivers in supplying information to medical professionals and behavior consultants to assist in accurate diagnostic processes. Learn the hallmarks of dementia and how they are frequently confused with other medical or behavioral conditions. Learn how people providing direct support can make the most invaluable observations on a day to day basis.
