Local Connections Matter
We are thrilled to be partnering with organizations across the country to support their new parent outreach. We believe working hand in hand will enable families to have a strong network of support.
Local Partnerships Team
Sometimes new and expectant parents look online for support and resources before they look locally, and when they do, they often find DSDN. Our Local Partnerships team helps to connect parents to the local organization that serves their area. If you aren't already connected to DSDN, reach out today so we can have up to date information to help make that connection.
Down Syndrome Collaborative (DSC)
The Down Syndrome Collaborative is a collaborative effort to best serve new and expectant parents from pregnancy through age 3 with key partners in the Down syndrome community. We welcome local Down syndrome support organizations doing this important work to join our monthly Down Syndrome Collaborative meeting. Each meeting focuses on a new topic, and encourages best practice sharing and discussion to better support for new and expectant parents. We aim to create and maintain relationships between organizations that have common missions to help all participants to meet their goals.
