While we’re talking about collaboration in the Down syndrome community, we have to highlight how social media has made it much easier for individuals to reach out to others in similar situations. The International Down Syndrome Coalition (IDSC) has created the space for us to do just that!
We asked IDSC Chairman, Beth Sullivan, to tell us a little bit about one of the unique strengths of IDSC: their Facebook groups. Thanks Beth!
The International Down Syndrome Coalition (IDSC) supports families with a loved one with Down syndrome in every step of their journey – from conception and throughout life.The IDSC understands the many emotions and thoughts that families with a new diagnosis may be experiencing. We are here to offer support, guidance and connections to other families that are now, or who have recently, gone through the same emotions and thought processes. Families with a new diagnosis, please keep in mind – you are not alone. This new journey will bring some challenges as well as much love and excitement. The IDSC is here to support you every step of the way.
