DSQ Youth & Adults Forum - North Brisbane
This informal forum will give DSQ Youth & Adults with Down syndrome the opportunity to come together and talk about what’s currently happening in their life with their fellow peers. We want to offer a forum in which we can encourage our Youth & Adults to openly express their views about any topics that are of interest to them in a safe and supportive environment. We anticipate to run these forums once every 2-3 months.Some of the topics that could be discussed at these forums:- Current activities/groups you attend- Support networks- Future planning- Your goals and interests- Independent living- Frustrations and concerns- Roadblocks and barriers- Sharing ideas and experiencesDSQ will also incorporate other aspects of personal development that would be of relevance to our members such as skills around public speaking, self-advocacy, work readiness, etc. DSQ will organise for guest speakers to attend future forums if we feel that they are more specialised in providing any information/training.We encourage members to let us know if there are any particular areas that are of concern/interest to you as a person with a disability, so we can aim to discuss them at these forums.PLEASE NOTE: These Forums are for youth and adults with Down syndrome. No parents please!
