321 Parent to Parent
Parent to Parent program is a resource to all families regardless of the age of their family member with Down syndrome. We provide resources and connections to other parents when there are specific needs or if a parent just needs to talk. 321 Parent to Parent is also here to help point families in the right direction for community resources that would also serve their needs.

We are available to help train you to do your own peer presentation, or possibly even present at your child's school.
