We want to help your child reach his or her full potential in all aspects of life. To achieve that goal, proper health care is instrumental in the development of your child. That’s why the convenience of a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary center focused on Down syndrome helps to ensure that each child’s medical, developmental and psychological needs are met.
The Center will make it simpler for you by:
- Arranging appointments at one location with the specialists your child needs to see.
- Arranging your appointments in the most efficient manner so you and your child gain the maximum benefit.
- Using a collaborative approach because our team of experienced caregivers is in one location.
