The Emory Down Syndrome Clinic
The Emory Down Syndrome Clinic schedules initial visits for children from birth to 14 years of age who have a confirmed diagnosis of Down syndrome. Each family's visit is a private appointment. The clinic team includes physicians and staff who have extensive experience in genetics , development, and education with an emphasis on the needs of individuals with Down syndrome and their families. These appointments are not designed to replace regular pediatric care but to provide an opportunity for parents to become familiar with Down syndrome and to discuss their questions and concerns in a family-centered environment.
