Parents of a newborn with Down Syndrome will receive a wealth of information on Down Syndrome. The Guild also puts new parents in contact with other parents who serve as a resource or as mentors. The Guild holds monthly meetings for parents and professionals who work with Down Syndrome patients, and schedules social gatherings for families and for those with Down Syndrome of all age groups.
