Parenting a Child With Down Syndrome
Being the parent of a child with Down syndrome means dealing with the special needs of that child while also tending to the challenges that every parent faces every day.
The old saying that it "takes a village to raise a child" is certainly true in Down syndrome. There are a multitude of services and support resources available to you to help you meet the challenges ahead.
