It is never easy to learn that your child has Down syndrome. The news fills most parents with an array of emotions, questions and fears. The best we can do is encourage you to learn all you can about Down syndrome, to welcome, value and love your baby and to embrace hope for a bright future.
The outlook for children with Down syndrome has improved dramatically in recent years due to parental involvement, increases in the quality of medical care, available therapies and educational support in our schools. As parents, we are amazed daily by our children's capabilities and accomplishments. You will be too.
Take your time to review this website and any materials you find and digest only that information which is helpful to you.
If you would like additional support, information or the opportunity to talk to another parent, we are here for you. Please call DSAOC at any time 714.540.5794. If you call after business hours, please leave a message and we will return your call as quickly as we can.
We look forward to meeting you and your new baby!
