Convention News

From the WSA website regarding the 2008 national convention in Garden Grove, California. I like the theme they chose. It's getting closer!

Dare to Dream; The theme for the 2008 convention reminds us all of the importance of allowing our children/students/patients with WS to reach for the sky and the necessity for us as parents/teachers/medical professionals to do all we can to provide them with the very best opportunity to make their dreams come true. Recognizing our need for professional assistance to acquire the latest in educational, therapeutic and medical strategies, techniques and treatments to help make dreams come true, we will provide daily keynote sessions from esteemed professionals followed by three 90-minute workshop blocks each day. During each block there will be a variety of professional and parent-led sessions of importance to parents and professionals working with children and adults with Williams syndrome of all ages.

Sounds like a GREAT theme for just about anything to me. I hope this trip is VERY rewarding for you. Hopefully you'll get a chance to have some "fun" out there too? My personal favorite would be to be a "Big Wave" Burger with fries at an "ISLANDS" restaurant. But that's just me! We lived in the city of Orange, CA. for 25 years and I know there is one there on Tustin Ave (and it's not far from Garden Grove). But like I said... that's JUST ME! ~ jb///
