Support

You Have a Support Network

At LMDSS, we are a community. We believe that every parent deserves the opportunity to access up-to-date information to other parents who can share first-hand experiences of raising a child with Down Syndrome.

Parent Support Meetings

Parent Support Meetings occur across the country and are hosted by parents of children with Down Syndrome and are designed to provide a welcoming, open environment to discuss experiences, challenges, concerns, and celebrations with each other.
Review past meetings here.
