Having a family member with Down syndrome is a unique and personal journey. Although this journey can be a blend of beauty, creativity and joyous celebration, families also encounter uncertainties about what the future may hold. Our mission is to help all patients reach their full potential and function as independently as possible in family, school and community life.
The Down Syndrome Clinic and Research Center provides interdisciplinary and comprehensive evaluations and services from birth to adulthood to patients from all over the United States. We specialize in assisting patients with challenges including:
- Pediatric developmental delay
- Complex neurodevelopmental and behavioral concerns
- Adolescent and adult mental health needs
We emphasize clinical care and research to treat underlying cognitive and neurobehavioral dysfunction, and continue to develop research studies to examine that neurobiological basis of intellectual and co-occurring mental health impairments in Down syndrome.
Although we are currently focused on providing individualized clinical evaluation and management, professional training, and research, it is our goal to continue building a comprehensive Down Syndrome Clinic and Research Center that provides seamless integration between clinical services and research in the areas of clinical neuroscience, pharmacology, sleep medicine, and behavioral-mental health interventions.
