Chapter 13 Support Groups
Section 1: Support Groups
Subsection H: Down Syndrome
DSACO provides new parents with packets that include parent contacts, current handouts on Down syndrome, and inspirational materials. It is very important that new families have a support system and are able to talk with other parents.
DSACO offers regular meetings to provide education and support for parents and families of children with Down syndrome. The meetings also offer an opportunity for parents to meet other families. They are informal gatherings that allow individuals and families an opportunity to share experiences while creating new friendships.
The Down Syndrome Association of Tulsa (DSAT) is a non-profit organization that exists to enhance the lives of individuals with Down syndrome, their families and caregivers. This is accomplished by providing support, encouragement, current information, education, opportunities for socialization and by promoting community recognition of the inherent dignity of all people with developmental disabilities.
