Down Syndrome WA runs several groups during the year which provide invaluable networking and peer support for new families. These include:
- New Parent morning teas around four times a year
- Fortnightly Developmental Playgroup throughout the year
- The Down Syndrome WA Support Network facebook group
Better Start Early Days workshops are also run from time to time for new families as needed.
New Parent Morning Teas
New parent morning teas are run by our Family Support team every term so that new families and families with young babies can connect and share experiences and information. Mums and dads are invited to come and meet other new families, in a relaxed and friendly environment. If bringing a grandparent or a close friend along would make you feel more comfortable, then please do. Our friendly support team will make you feel at home and can provide you with general information, answer your questions or put you in touch with someone in your area. DSC therapy staff are invited to attend these sessions to let you know what services are available for your new baby and to answer any development or therapy related queries that you might have.
Morning teas are run on four Fridays a year, between 10am and 12 noon, at Down Syndrome WA, Suite 3, 2 Canning Highway, South Perth (right next door to McDonalds on the corner of Berwick Street). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to find out more or to be put in touch with our friendly support staff.
