MADISON (WKOW) -- More than 100 people have signed up to participate in the "Changing Minds" conference Saturday in Madison that addresses groundbreaking results on Down syndrome.

Registration begins at 9:15 a.m. and the conference runs from 9:45 a.m.-4 p.m. at the American Family Headquarters. A $5-$10 donation is suggested.

Lexy Austin has a six-year-old son, Mac, who has Down syndrome. She and her husband are hosting the conference after putting Mac on a new "protocol" that helped his memory and learning.

The conference is designed for parents like the Austins, teachers, social workers and anyone that would like to learn more about groundbreaking developments in Down syndrome.

Austin joined "Changing Minds" founder Teresa Cody on Wake Up Wisconsin Weekend to talk about the new developments.
