Over the next year, LEG Up! is partnering with WWDSS to offer our members a 5-course program focused on building independence skills. Before the first course launches in April, this information night is for parents, caregivers and future course participants (adults and teens 13+ with Down syndrome).  This session will provide an overview of the 5-course program that will occur over the next year with separate registrations for each course.   The information session will clarify course content and answer questions.
