I have been involved with our association for the past five years. I first sought out information when my grandaughter was born with down syndrome. As I got to know Christy and the other members I could see what an awesome service organization it is. I have over the years been involves in many of the events and have seen the benefit it is to our kids and their families.
I am teacher in College Station and work with students with Down Syndrome. This association is a GREAT resource for parents, children, families, and even teachers! The group provides classes in various areas to help everyone it serves. I am constantly impressed with the organization and effort this groups put out to educate the community!
I am a Early CHildhood Specialist working with Down Syndrome children and families. Before I even see the child already after birth, the Down Syndrome support Group is contacting the family and most of the time referring the family to our services. I have taken some famiies to the first meeting and they feel welcome. My clients are Spanish speakers and they have a few families that will contact them and translate for them also.
