Visiting Infants and Parents (VIP) Program

Oftentimes, becoming a parent of a child with Down syndrome brings many questions that only another parent can answer. If you reside in Northwest Ohio or Southern Michigan and would like a personal visit at your hospital or home from a parent of a child with Down syndrome that has been in your shoes, please contact us at or 567-742-4004.

Mentor Program

DSAGT also helps families assemble the building blocks necessary at every step of development as they construct a fulfilling life for their child. These blocks are comprised of emotional support, information, education and connections. The Parent Mentor program is designed to assist new and expectant parents as they begin the journey of caring for their baby in each of these areas. Often parents are looking for support with issues related to gross motor skill development, transition into kindergarten, communication skill development and social connections. The Parent Mentor program offers a variety of information and support to families with children of all ages. For more information or to request a parent mentor please contact
