According to the philosophy of the Coordinadora Down Catalunya, we understand the early support as the global support that we offer both the child with Down syndrome and their family during the first years of life.
The organizations which form part of the Coordinadora Down Catalonia develop programs which consist in an educational form, moreover in a social and health involvement. The goal is to enrich the environment in which the child develops, promoting the interaction with the people who surround them and help parents and families offering essential support in these first moments.
Through working with the families, we inform and advise them in all of the possible aspects, according to the principle of standardization of people with Down syndrome.
Families have important needs to cover and for that reason they require support and assistance in these key moments of their life cycle. It is important that both families and professionals work in a coordinate way, so that the activities carried out from both fields are agreed and they strengthen one another.
