The Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio offers several different support groups to provide support and information to families and children with Down syndrome. Our goal is to increase awareness and improve the quality of life for those living with Down syndrome. The groups include:
Additional Information About Support Groups:

- 3 to 6-year-olds Group: This group focuses on issues such as toilet training, sibling relationships and public education. Information about the IEP process is essential as children transition into public education.
