For optimal health care, families may wish to locate a developmental pediatrician, a specialist knowledgeable about Down syndrome or a Down syndrome clinic. These specialists can work with the primary care physician. Local parent groups are an excellent resource for learning of health care professionals who have experience with Down syndrome.

However, it is not always necessary or possible to find an expert on Down syndrome. The most important thing is that the doctor is willing to learn about the condition and collaborate with the family and individual with Down syndrome.
Down Syndrome Specialty Clinics Database
This database of clinical providers with specialty services available for patients with Down syndrome was created by NDSS in partnership with its Clinical Advisory Board. All information included in this database was provided by the institutions themselves through a survey conducted by NDSS.
This database was created as an informational tool, not a referral, rating or medical service.
If you represent a clinic and do not see your institution listed here, please contact NDSS Information & Referral Specialist Kjerstin Besser at [email protected]
