Advocacy. Education. Awareness.

Outreach

The DSA of Delaware Outreach program offers support and resources to expectant and new families of babies with Down syndrome in our area. We also help families of children with Down syndrome that are moving or have moved into Delaware and the region.

The Outreach program is focused on spreading support and awareness with the most up to date literature and educational materials on Down syndrome. The team achieves this goal through a number of ways — representation on the Down Syndrome Clinic staff, visits to new families, and playdates are just a few.

The DSA of Delaware is a part of the Down Syndrome Clinic at Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.  The clinic provides medical, social, and developmental care all in one place.  The DSA of Delaware Outreach representative sees families at the clinic, providing a fellow parent’s perspective as well as a listening ear. Families are encouraged to initially visit the clinic when diagnosed prenatally or upon the birth of their child. All ages (up to 21) are encouraged to visit the clinic routinely.  The Down Syndrome Clinic can be reached at: 302-651-5916.

The Outreach team also reaches out to families throughout the year visiting new babies and delivering welcome kits.
