DSV are offering the opportunity to get together with other Victorian parents each month in an informal online format. Our peer catchups a great chance to meet other parents, share information and experiences.
Who are these sessions for?
These sessions are suitable for parents who have a child with Down syndrome aged 0-15 years. We also periodically run coffee and chat sessions for parents of older teens and adults which you can take a look at here.
