In March, a forum for families was held in Mexico City. The forum talks were centered on nutrition, dentistry and sexuality of persons with intellectual disabilities. A tooth-brushing practice session was conducted and there was a Zumba dance class exhibition given by a teacher with intellectual disabilities. More than 160 people attended the event.
