Slide presentation

Here is a slide set in PowerPoint developed by Ann Donoghue Dillon, the inspiration behind GEMSS. This is how Ann promotes the website when we send her on the road! Most importantly, Ann highlights how individual parents can make a huge impact in spreading the word. We invite you to use this in full, or adapt it to your needs!

Article to share - "Finding the GEMSS in Your School"

"Finding the GEMSS in Your School", Ann Donoghue Dillon

Published in the March 2014 issue of Exceptional Parent magazine, this was a collaborative effort with the Genetic Alliance, a regular contributor to the magazine. 

"If you are like me, I always had my eyes and ears open to learn about any information to help my daughter receive a good education! Having a genetic condition that was both rare and new for her school, she made all of us on the team try our best and then hope! I wish GEMSS was available when she was starting out in school! It would have been a great source of information that we could have used as a foundation, and then branched out as needed!" – Ann Donoghue Dillon


Posters are set up for printing on paper that is 11' x 17', but will print nicely on standard size as well. We envision these in your office, common area or waiting room!
