TEAM DOWN SYNDROME
We are so excited to get ready to raise money for TEAM DOWN SYNDROME! The Down Syndrome Program provides medical and neurodevelopmental care for children with Down syndrome from birth through age 22 years. From birth to age 3 years, our program provides interdisciplinary services in which the family and child meet with a team comprised of a developmental pediatrician or nurse practitioner, physical therapist, nutritionist, speech pathologist, dentist, audiologist, and the Program Coordinator. For children from 3 – 22 years old, we offer personalized, multidisciplinary care including neurodevelopmental and behavioral evaluations, psychological assessments, psychiatry consultation, and customized subspecialty care.
In connection with the teaching philosophy of Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, the Down Syndrome Program within the Developmental Medicine Center is dedicated to training pediatricians, psychologists, developmental behavioral pediatrics fellows, and trainees in neurodevelopmental disabilities. The Down Syndrome Program also welcomes medical students, genetic counseling students, and other healthcare professionals who are interested in learning more about Down syndrome through observations. Our program is one of the oldest and largest Down Syndrome programs, and continues to serve as a model for interdisciplinary and family-centered care for individuals with Down syndrome nationally and internationally.
Every dollar raised goes directly to initiatives to help our patients and their families! We are so grateful for your generosity and support of our program!
