Down Syndrome Program
THE DOWN SYNDROME PROGRAM in the Developmental Medicine Center at Boston Children's Hospital offers multidisciplinary clinical evaluations for people with Down syndrome from birth until the age of 18. With each appointment, we are also able to make referrals and connections with any of the other specialty clinics at Boston Children's Hospital.
The Down Syndrome Program at Boston Children's Hospital is more than a clinic, however. We strive to provide resources, advocacy, and supports to all families, depending on their individual needs.
Team Members Include:
- Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician
- Nurse Practitioner
- Physical Therapist
- Speech Pathologist
- Research Coordinator
- Program Coordinator
- Community Case Coordinator
- Program Liaison Volunteer
- Patient Liaison
"Families often say their most exciting child is their child with Down Syndrome."
-- Allen Crocker, MD, past director of the Down Syndrome Program at Children's

Have you just had a new baby?
For families who may be visiting our page for the first time and are the new parents of a child with Down Syndrome, we would love to highlight a starting point for you! We created a presentation called "Your Baby's First Year: What You Should Know!" that can be viewed online at anytime! We hope this presentation answers some questions, gives some guidance, and helps you while you get started on your new journey! More presentations can be viewed on our Speaker Series Recording page!
Congratulations on your new baby!
