We all learn very quickly that the statement “It takes a village” takes on special meaning when you are parenting a child with challenges. The WSA National Convention helps us to create our personal “village.” It provides a forum for learning - both from experts on the many medical, emotional and cognitive challenges of Williams syndrome, and from parents/caregivers who have been there before us, and are walking the same path now.  In short, the convention is the single most powerful tool in your toolbox - providing a wealth of information as well as parent and professional contacts.  
 
The Convention also provides an opportunity for both parents/caregivers and those with Williams syndrome to get a glimpse of what’s to come through the many children and adults with WS of ALL AGES who will be in attendance, and everyone makes life-long friendships along the way.
 
The health and safety of you and your family is our biggest priority. We are closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19.  It is our hope that this will all be behind us soon and no action will be necessary but we are fully prepared if needed.  We will update this space periodically when additional information becomes available and notify you immediately by email if a change is required.

Registration is temporarily closed until we learn more about how COVID-19 will affect our convention. We will communicate when we know more. Thank you for your understanding.
