Dementia in people with Down syndrome: the state of the science


Dementia in people with Down syndrome: the state of the science

Dementia in people with Down syndrome: the state of the science 

This one-day seminar explores the latest findings in the area of brain health, cognitive ageing and dementia among people with Down syndrome. People with Down syndrome are at a very high risk of developing dementia as they age. There is still much to be learned about diagnosis and post-diagnostic support.

Trinity Centre for Ageing and Intellectual Disability (TCAID) presents the state of the science on dementia in Down syndrome. Key world leaders will explore symptom recognition, assessment tools, biomarkers, advances in treatments and bolstering infrastructure, including the plans for a National Memory Service for people with an intellectual disability.

Given that people with Down syndrome are the world’s largest genetically predisposed population to develop dementia, approaches to treatment may unlock treatment for the population at large.

Speakers include:

Minister Finian McGrath TD, Minister of State for Disability Issues

Dr André Strydom, Professor of Intellectual Disabilities, Dept of Forensic & Neurodevelopmental Sciences, King's College London 

Dr Shahid Zaman, Associate Lecturer, Department of Psychiatry, Cambridge Intellectual Disability Research Group, University of Cambridge 

Prof Philip McCallion, Director of the School of Social Work, Temple University, Philadelphia 

Prof Mary McCarron, Director, Trinity Centre for Ageing and Intellectual Disability, Trinity College Dublin
