Programs

Faithful support from United Way NL http://www.nl.unitedway.ca/, our golf tournament, Air Canada ticket draw, tremendous support from the business community and others have enabled us to provide needed services (speech, music and occupational therapy) to our members.


Speech Therapy and
Occupational Therapy
Every year, the society budgets for the provision of speech therapy and occupational therapy for member families. Unfortunately, the ability to provide these essential services is provided through various fundraising events, and without help from any government agency. In light of this, this opportunity is currently only available in the St. John’s area. As a society, our intention is to help ensure that all children with Down syndrome have access to the services they need. We will continue to lobby government, and we will continue to do our best to raise awareness about Down syndrome.
