The Down Syndrome Program at the Institute on Development and Disability (IDD) is dedicated to caring for children with Down syndrome, from newborn to age 21. We work closely with you, your child and your family to ensure the best possible health and development for your child.
Children with Down syndrome have unique health care and developmental concerns that often require integrated services from a multitude of health care, social, and educational services. Using the guidelines developed by the Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group for systematic, preventative care, our physicians work in conjunction with the patient's primary care provider. The clinic team focuses on maximizing the development of individuals with Down syndrome by managing medical issues, connecting them with community resources, and teaching families to advocate for their children.
