In many ways, there has never been a better time to have a child with Down syndrome, and yet we still hear of families not being given information or access to support when receiving a diagnosis. Help DSDN bridge this gap by donating now.

In many ways, there has never been a better time to have a child with Down syndrome, and yet we still hear of families not being given information or access to support when receiving a diagnosis. Help DSDN bridge this gap by donating now.

Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (DSDN) is a non-profit organization that launched in 2014. We are an online-based network that has made it our mission to support new and expectant parents of children with Down syndrome. DSDN is the largest national organization supporting new and expectant parents with a Down syndrome diagnosis. The mission of the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network is to connect, support, and provide accurate information to parents - and the medical professionals who serve them - from the time of diagnosis through age 3, while fostering the opportunity for lifelong connections. Our vision is that every Down syndrome diagnosis will be delivered in an unbiased, factual, and supportive way every time, and that families can quickly find meaningful connections.

We currently reach about 20% of those with a new diagnosis annually and support over 17,000 families that have a child with Down syndrome, with an emphasis on diagnosis and early childhood.
