Dennis McGuire’s Mental Wellness seminar now available online!

In May this year Dennis McGuire visited Australia to deliver a series of seminars to families, health professionals and support workers on Mental Wellness and Healthy Living for People with Down Syndrome.

Uniquely placed to share his insights and learnings, Dennis McGuire is an internationally renowned behavioural expert, the co-founder of the Adult Down Syndrome Clinic of Chicago and co-author of Mental Wellness in Adults with Down Syndrome and The Guide to Good Health for Teens and Adults with Down Syndrome.

Down Syndrome NSW has received tremendously positive feedback about the Mental Wellness and Health Living seminars where Dennis McGuire shared his 30 plus years of experience, knowledge, wit and wisdom about creating a healthy and happy life for people with Down syndrome.

So we are delighted to bring you an online resource of Dennis McGuire delivering highlights from the seminar.

Featuring two, one-hour versions (we have also included the session for Adults with DS), the seminar includes:
  • Common behavioural responses in people with DS 
  • Promoting strengths and creative potential 
  • Behavioural characteristics involving social skills 
  • Promoting healthy self-esteem. 
This resource, created especially for Dennis McGuire’s Australian visit, will be an invaluable reference for years to come.

It is the next best thing to having been there!
