Down Syndrome Resources

Contact the Florida Department of Health

The National Down Syndrome Congress has a webpage devoted to new and expectant parents. It includes sections entitled: Fast Facts About Down Syndrome, Expectant Parent's Guide, New Parent's Guide and Parent Resources.

 The mission of the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network is to support families with current information and real-life accounts of life with Down syndrome during the prenatal to early childhood phases.

Lettercase provides families with a downloadable booklet to assist parents whose child has recently received a new Down syndrome diagnosis, titled “Understanding a Down Syndrome Diagnosis.”
