In brief: Many support groups
Internet resources for parents of children with down syndrome include the national association for down syndrome, at www.
Nads.Org, a social networking site for parents of down syndrome children at www.Downsyndrome.Com, and sids network, a world of information and support, found at http://sids-network.Org. These groups have local chapters also. March of dimes is another place to seek support.

In brief: Local & national
There are many options for support for families of infants with down's syndrome.
You may want to check out the website for the nationsl down syndorme society at http://www.Ndss.Org/. There are options for local affiliates on their website. Your pediatrician may want to refer you to the local pediatric geneticist, who often has more information for local support groups in your area.
