Dr. Brian Skotko

Two of the most common, yet challenging, questions that Dr. Skotko is asked by caregivers: (1) How can you prevent Alzheimer’s disease in people with Down syndrome? (2) How might we boost their cognition? While exciting research is unfolding in laboratories across the world, there are strategies that caregivers can take right now in respect to these two questions. In this video series, Dr. Skotko reveals his recommendations, which must meet all of the following criteria: (a) supported, in part, by quality science, (b) have practical applications for home, (c) be adaptable to people with Down syndrome, and (d) pose no risk to people with Down syndrome. This is not a video series on how best to educate people with Down syndrome. This is not a video series about supplements or nutraceuticals. Instead, Dr. Skotko provides a set of actions that caregivers can take that might improve the long-term wellness for their loved one with Down syndrome. You will come away with immediate steps that can be implemented right now with your loved ones with Down syndrome.

Please please please join us! Spread the word and feel free to share the event!
Friends, As of right now not one single person has reached out to help get the Special Olympic sports up amd running in Cenla. Without the help of 2 people willing to donate minimal time, I will have to report back to headquarters that there is no interest for sports of our kiddos who need it most. Please, please, please let me know this week if you are interested.
Just wanted to share in honor of this pretty girl's 33rd birthday!
Hi there! My name is Kristine and I am the team leader for special olympics of Alexandria. As you may know, our area is significantly lacking opportunities for kiddos with disabilities to get involved. I am currently looking to form a team to help resolve this issue. Specifically, I am looking for someone to coordinate volunteers and someone to coordinate sports. Most importantly I am looking for people who are ready to GET INVOLVED. I would like to get some insight on the best times and days to plan an informal get together for those interested.
Any back to school events coming up?
