The program for the (US) National Down Syndrome Congress's 40th annual convention, to be held this month in Washington, is replete with sessions and speakers that will attract more than 2000 delegates.
While it would be a wonderful experience to attend in person, most of us in Australia will not have that opportunity, but the wonders of the internet will now give us online access to a selection from the program, either live-streamed (if the time-zones work for us) or as recordings available to access until 1 June 2013.
We have checked out the online registration/payment process for users from Australia, and it worked first time.
Here's how to register and pay online, from the NDSC Convention website:
