The MassGeneral Hospital Down Syndrome Program provides state-of-the-art care by a multidisciplinary team of providers for people with Down syndrome of all ages.

Our Down Syndrome Program has five distinct clinical services to ensure that people with Down syndrome receive the specialty care that is specific for their age group:

  • Infant & Toddler Clinic (ages birth-5): Families will be educated about Down syndrome and comprehensive supports will be provided for their child’s early needs.
  • Child Clinic (ages 5-13): The healthcare of children will be maximized so that they can achieve successes during school-aged years.
  • Adolescent & Young Adult Clinic (ages 13-21): Families and youth will be supported and educated about transition planning. The goal is for your child to be prepared for adulthood and as engaged in their care as possible.
  • Adult Clinic (ages 21 and older): Adults will be supported to lead healthy lives marked by meaningful engagements with their communities.
  • Prenatal Services: We offer consultations in a private setting for expectant parents who have received a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.
