Down Syndrome Medical Care Centers

The Global Down Syndrome Foundation is dedicated to significantly improving the lives of people with Down syndrome through Medical Care, Research, Education and Advocacy.

Global recommends parents or caregivers of children with Down syndrome follow the 2011 American Academy of Pediatrics Health Supervision for Children With Down Syndrome. For adults with Down syndrome, Global recommends they or their caregiver follow the 2001 American Family Physician Guidelines For Adults with Down Syndrome.

In addition to following the healthcare guidelines, it may be useful for people with Down syndrome to visit with medical professionals who have significant experience treating people with Down syndrome. To this end, Global has created a map of the US highlighting where there are Down syndrome medical care centers. To be clear, only centers specifically specializing in treating patients with Down syndrome are listed. In order to best help parents, caregivers and self-advocates, Global also created a check list of useful information and contacted each center to verify all the information on the check list.

Please encourage any centers that have not provided a completed check list to do so, and contact us if you have information on medical care centers that should be added.
