Down Syndrome Network
May 16, 2009

When our son was born with Down syndrome, my husband and I had many questions and we were in need of information and support. I spoke with many people from this group after our son was born and started attending playgroups, workshops and other fun events. Our son has brought us many blessings including the people we have met and the information we have gained through DSNetwork.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a number of ways! New parents have received information and support that was crucial in getting through the first few months. Other families have received information on educational opportunities, playgroups, and social activities

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

gaining information and knowledge to help our son and other children born with disabilities

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

patient, kind, understanding and supportive

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a center where children and adults with Down syndrome and their families could receive support, therapy, and educational services. This center could also provide young adults with Down syndrome a place to work, meet others and socialize. This group could work within the community to raise awareness for Down syndrome, help others with disabilities, and make a difference in their community.
