The Down Syndrome Clinic's core team, which meets twice a month from 8:30 a.m. until noon, comprises a pediatrician, social worker, occupational therapist, parent advocate and a psychologist.

The clinic follows the Preventitive Medicine Checklist issued by The National Down Syndrome Clinics Network and confers with this network for updates.

A unique part of the Down Syndrome Clinic format involves a group session held the morning of each clinic. Families meet each other and ask questions or express their concerns to the core team members in an informal, relaxed setting. The clinic is designed for consultation and evaluation and is not a substitute for primary care.
