Low Down on Law Day

In partnership with Davey Law Group, P.A., the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida provides two Low Down on Law workshops each year. Expert lawyers, judges, and officials in the Central Florida community come together to break down the legal complexities families with special needs must navigate for their loved ones. Those who previously attended the event were overwhelmingly grateful for the knowledge and advice they received. All material, presentations, and information is brought to you at no charge at this amazing event!

"Today's presentation was one of the best I've attended in a long time. Great presenters. Great information. Great give and take. THIS is why we all Step Up for Down Syndrome!!!"
