One of the best ways to meet other parents is to get involved with the Up Side of Downs Family Support Groups. These groups can provide you with an excellent forum for sharing your feelings and concerns as a new parent, and an opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have been in your shoes. Learning more about Down syndrome can also help ease some of your uncertainty, and support groups are a great place to start gaining knowledge. In addition to providing emotional support, other parents can recommend useful Down syndrome resources and help you understand the new terminology.
USOD offers a wide range of support groups to fit your needs – from Baby & Toddler Gatherings, Parents Night Out, Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome, Grandparents to Parents of Adults with Ds. We hope you can join us!
