Workshop 1:
Presented by Dr. Sindoor Desai (Sujeet’s Mom) who believes Sujeet is a perfect example of how one born with Down syndrome can improvise their life using their various abilities. She talks about various research on the theory of multiple intelligence and how it is applied in the medical field as well as in schools. She will share how when using their “abilities (MI)”, they will improvise their life and reach their goals.

Workshop 2:
Presented by David Whalen, Project Manager at Niagara University, New York and founder of Disability Awareness Training in 2004. Be it the parent of a toddler or an adult transitioning to adult life, there are many angles and factors that go into ensuring the safety and well-being of a person with a disability.
