Lived Experience

Personal experience presentation proposals 

Lived Experience Presentations

We know that the real life experiences of people with Down’s syndrome and their families gives them a unique perspective.  We also know that one family’s experiences or achievements can inspire and encourage the next family to do, or expect something different. 

If you have Down’s syndrome, or you have a relative that does and they or you have a story, experience or achievement to share, then we encourage you to submit a Lived Experience Presentation proposal.

Available Audio Visual Technology

Each room comes complete with a screen, data projector, laptop with sound, built in CD player and memory stick slot; there will also be a lectern with a built-in microphone. In larger suites, there will also be a top table with microphones, plus a roving microphone. Wi-Fi will be available in all rooms. Technical support will be provided by the venue.
