Down Syndrome

According to the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities, "Research has shown that stimulation during early developmental stages improves the child's chances of developing to his or her fullest potential. Continuing education, positive public attitudes, and a stimulating home environment have also been found to promote the child's overall development."

"New parents who find themselves caring for children with special needs, from developmental delays to significant disabilities, often need support and services to help their children develop to their fullest potential. Children and their families need support so that they can grow, develop, learn and be as ready as possible for success with friends, in school, and in life. " Issues for Michigan's Children, March 2015
