Fox Cities New Parent Support Group

  • DSAW-Fox Cities Office 211 East Franklin Street Appleton, WI, 54911 United States (map)

Being a new parent to a child with Down Syndrome can raise a mix of emotions. The diagnosis can leave you feeling shocked, overwhelmed, and even lonely. Those first few years of this new journey will be filled with so much new information, appointments to doctors and specialists, and you'll wonder if you're doing this right. Often times, we're so busy taking care of our child(ren) that we put our own needs last. You are not alone in this, and we'd love to help, even if it's just to talk and listen to one another.

Please join us at the DSAW Fox Cities Support Group, a kid-free zone where parents or caregivers can discuss their feelings in a non-judgmental environment. This is currently for parents with children around age 3 and under who are fairly new in their journey. If there is interest from different age groups, we will look into adding more support groups in the future, as each age brings its own challenges. 

When: Sunday, February 18th, 3:30pm
Where: 211 East Franklin Street Appleton, WI 54911
Who: Parents of a child with Down Syndrome, age 3 & under

Please let us know if you're coming!

Thank you,
