10th World Down Syndrome Congress huge success!

Just got back from Ireland, and from speaking & exhibiting at the 10th World Down Syndrome Congress. Wow - what a great success in many, many ways! As a result, I will write a few blog entries about this conference, as there is so much to say!

I was very excited about officially launching our new CD/DVD combination at this conference, as what a better way for individuals to take eReadingPro back to their countries than in a compact pack such as this. It was a big success! So much so, that a number of people are taking the initiative to work with us to translate our reading program into the language of their country so that many, many more children can also gain from using it to learn to read!

Pictured with me here is Mr. Stanley Reddy from Down Syndrome South Africa - Durban group. His son Max is an amazing self-advocate who works full time and drives himself to and from work in his own car! The next World Down Syndrome Congress will be held in 3 years in Cape Town and eReadingPro plans to be there!
