Our History

Over 20 years of service

In January 2002, a group of parents of children with Down syndrome got together to discuss the sometimes confusing situations that arise while raising a child with Down syndrome. From that discussion, the idea was born for a `one-stop information source’ to consolidate the innumerable resources that one must invariably wade through when searching for specialized information and Down Syndrome Network (DSNetwork) was formed.
