The DSAWM offers several programs and services designed to provide support and information to medical professionals and students pursuing degrees in various medical fields.
The Promoting Possibilities Program is an effort by the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan (DSAWM) to provide resources and support to medical professionals who are involved in delivering a diagnosis of Down syndrome to new and expectant parents.
As a medical professional, you will often be the first to communicate to a family their newborn's diagnosis of Down syndrome. Your words will have a lifelong impact. Please contact DSAWM Program Coordinator, Lacey Charboneau at 616-956-3488 or firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Conferences, workshops and webinars are held throughout the year to address current topics relevant to parents/caregivers of, and professionals who work with, individuals who have Down syndrome. Examples include topics such as behavior, education, health, child development, estate planning and other relevant issues.
The DSAWM Lending Library contains materials that are invaluable resources to parents and professionals alike on topics such as parenting, development, teaching strategies, medical concerns and much more.
