Up About Down Logo

Up About Down

In 1990, a small group of parents joined together for support, information sharing and also developed a baby package for parents of children with Down syndrome. After realizing the need in the community to share this information, Up About Down was formed. Since then, the group has grown and we now share more than just a baby package – we share a wealth of experience and information – throughout our group and the community at large. We do our best to advocate for our children and educate the public along the way.
