We are a group of friends who have come together because we share the common bond of caring for someone who has Trisomy 21. We are here to share therapy tips, medical issues, laughs, accomplishments and yes, even frustrations. We embrace what Trisomy 21 has brought into our lives. We feel that it has taught us to appreciate the true meaning of life. We count our children as blessings! We will fiercely protect them and fight for their lives to be valued just as all other peoples' are. We share our pictures, our stories and our hearts here not only to provide friendship and support for each other, but also in the hopes that others will open their minds and their hearts to our unique children and, in turn, make a better world for everyone.

These pages are intended to be a growing data-base of professionals, services, organizations, suppliers...etc. related to Trisomy 21.  This area can also be used to include personal testimonials related to the resource that you or someone else has suggested.  The goal of these pages is for families and/or educators to more easily find the resources they will need as well as to get first-hand testimonials of that resource. 

We will be establishing two different types of databases.  One will be related to geographically areas and services/professionals that are specific to those areas.  The other will be a more general data base which will include products that can assist people with Trisomy 21 and information sources about Trisomy 21.  Below you will find an explanation of each style of data base.

GEOGRAPHICAL REGION DATE BASES

Categories for professionals/resources will be broken into either province or state (depending on if you are in Canada or the United States) and will fall into the following categories:

  • Advocacy Resources - People and organizations that will aide in advocating for your child in any setting.

  • Educational Resources - facilities, suppliers, educators, educational consultants, vocational/job skill programs...etc.

  • Leisure Activity Resources - sports, arts, playgroups, camps, ...etc.  Note that these can be either specifically for people with Trisomy 21 or organizations that have shown an openness and celebration of inclusion of those with Trisomy 21.

  • Medical Resources - doctors, dentists, pediatricians, ENTs, cardiologists, nutritionists, specific hospitals...etc.

  • Support Resources - organizations and/or individuals including Down syndrome organizations, respite care agencies, individuals who are willing to be contacted...etc.

  • Therapy Resources - Traditional Therapists (speech, occupational, physical) as well as other therapists (hippo, water, music...etc.)

  • Vocational/Transitional Resources - People and organizations who will aid in making a smooth transition out of highschool for those who have Trisomy 21.

  • Other Resources - Research groups/projects, estate planners, and anything that doesn't fit into the above categories.

For now, we will be working on establishing two country data bases - one for Canada and one for the United States.  To submit a resource or to view the resources that have already been submitted for either country, just follow these links:
