Are you the parent of a child with Down syndrome under the age of 8 and would like to mentor a new family as they begin their journey? If so, please save the date for the NCDSA Parent Mentor Training. For new and expectant parents, any opportunity to connect with other parents who have had similar experiences can be invaluable. NCDSA will hold a training for parents interested in becoming mentors. Potential mentors must attend the full training and be willing to commit to consistent contact with new families for up to one year. Families who have experience with adoption, medically fragile children, or are bi-lingual are encouraged to participate.
