Annual Conference

The Brighterside of Down Syndrome of San Joaquin County (TBODS) is holding our 3rd Annual conference on September 8, 2017 in Modesto.

We are excited to have Paula Kluth for this year’s conference and we chose her because of her positive and collaborative style and her passion for equipping educators and parents with practical and easy to use tools to help all children succeed.

The goal of the conference is to provide all participants current information on effective strategies to use with students with Down syndrome and students of all abilities. In addition, participants will be provided a variety of tools that they can begin to implement the very next day with their students/children. A group of parents started the conference 3 years ago and have been bringing speakers from around the Nation to help equip educators and parents with the tools needed to better serve all learners, no matter their abilities. The past two years, the conference has been held in San Joaquin County and we are very excited to be in Stanislaus County this year, as many families we serve reside in Stanislaus County.
