The Down Syndrome Program was founded in 1967, and is housed in the Developmental Medicine Center at Boston Children's Hospital. The program is one of the oldest and largest of its kind, offering multidisciplinary health care for people with Down syndrome from birth until they reach age 22. With each appointment, we are also able to make referrals and connections with any of the other specialty clinics at Boston Children's. The Down Syndrome Program is more than a clinic, however. We strive to provide resources, advocacy, and supports to all families, depending on their individual needs.
