Welcome to DS ConneX
DS ConneX is network of support groups specifically for parents, grandparents, and siblings. Each family member, young or old, is invited to join a group at anytime. This is a safe place to share your experiences, joys, or concerns about having a family member with Down syndrome. The goal of ConneX is to strengthen family support and provide you with needed information and resources. Each group is catered towards the individual needs of moms, dads, grandparents, and both adult and young siblings. New members are always welcome to join us for drop in meetings.
