Resources and Support
DSIA New Parent Support
Come meet other parents in a safe and comfortable space to discuss all aspects of being a parent to a baby with Down syndrome - joys and challenges alike! Bring your questions – everything is welcome – or come to listen and share with others. Make friends and develop a support system for the days and years ahead.
A DSIA Parent to Parent Mentor will guide each meeting, answer any questions and offer support to new families.
This support group is for families who have a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome or who have a baby, 0-18 months old with Down syndrome. Please do not bring other children.

GWGWDS is an independent group of grandparents with grandchildren with Down syndrome. They are not attached to any organization, agency, or entity. They exist to provide support, information, and education to those who want it. There are no commercial solicitations, no medical advice given, and never any derogatory comments. They welcome all grandparents worldwide with children with Down syndrome without regard to race, creed, religion, or national origin.
