Green Bay Parent's First Call Support Parent Training

  • Journey Community Church 115 North Wisconsin Street De Pere, WI, 54115 United States (map)

Connecting with another parent who has a child with Down syndrome can be one of the most helpful resources a parent will have – it can help make their journey a little easier.

The Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin (DSAW) partners with Parent to Parent of Wisconsin (P2P) to train support parents and match them with new and expectant parents who are looking for resources and support. Trainings prepare you to give support to another parent of a child with Down syndrome.

Join us for our Support Parent Training and help us meet the increasing need for peer support by becoming part of Wisconsin’s Network of Support Parents and the DSAW Parent’s First Call Program.

The trainings are free and lunch is provided. Space is limited - Please register early for the training listed below!

I feel like I am at a good place in my life to be a Support Parent for new and expectant parents. *
The role of a Support Parent is to provide support to new and expectant parents of babies with Down syndrome. The ideal Support Parent has time in their lives to connect with other parents, and maintain connection with the parent for at least a year after initial contact. In addition, Support Parents should be in a positive place about their own child’s diagnosis, and be prepared to lend a positive, listening ear to others.
