Williams Syndrome Association newsletter focusing on education

2013 Heart to Heart Special Issue 1 focuses on education, including resources, intellectual assessment tools, assistive technology, using apps, and transitioning to kindergarten.

2013 has arrived, and with it come a few changes that will not only allow us to 'go green' and make the best use of your donation dollars, but also keep you and your family better informed.  To achieve these goals, we will now be doing the following:

  • Heart to Heart will be published 2 times per year with each issue focused on a specific topic.  Our first Special Issue for this year focuses on Education.  Click the link above to view the electronic version.  If you are a current 'paid' member, you will also receive a paper version in the mail shortly. 
  • We will continue to keep you informed of all the daily WSA news and happenings in our bi-monthly eNewsletter, via email if you sign up: Williams Syndrome Association . We hope you enjoy the new Heart to Heart format, and find it helpful.
