Becoming a parent to a child with Down Syndrome can be overwhelming, lonely and stressful. The New Parent Mentor Program matches new parents with other parents of children with Down Syndrome.
Many of us have found strength and comfort connecting with other parents who are raising children with DS. We hope that if you’re not ready to talk to a DSAT peer supporter, that you’ll take a moment to review the New and Expectant Parent Package, “21 Welcomes” which was created by CDSS.
