Down syndrome is the most common genetic condition in the world today and India has one of the highest incidences of Down syndrome. In spite of that, awareness about this condition is so low, most people tend to confuse persons with Down syndrome with other intellectual disabilities. The Down Syndrome Federation of India would like to break the myths associated with Down syndrome and help make people more aware about it and help break various taboos related to this condition.
The 1st India International Down Syndrome Conference held in September 2017 was a huge success with a lot of knowledge sharing and information gathering. The demand for the next edition of the Conference was really high. That has led to the next edition of the conference at The Corinthians Resort, Pune from the 31st of May to the 2nd of June 2018.
Persons with Down syndrome have achieved a lot in the fields of art, sports and cultural activities. What is needed is a change in the mindsets of people. In order to do this, DSFI is proud to present the next edition of the annual conference for persons with Down syndrome at Pune. This event is planned to have a mix of Fun and Learning. And the organizers have ensured that they leave no stone unturned in their effort to make the the event a memorable one not only for persons with Down syndrome but all the attendees at IIDSC 2018
