Comment on NC Infant-Toddler Program

Family Comments:  

I feel like in our situation we were in dire need of help. I just love that there is a program out there that said, I care about your child.  

--parent of a child served by the Sandhills CDSA

I’m learning as much as my daughter is. We’re all learning and that’s a big deal. It’s not just for her; it’s a whole family thing.  

--parent of a child served by the Greenville CDSA

When I first got into the program my goal was to have support and understanding because this was new. To get a diagnosis of your child having Down Syndrome, the first thing that comes in your mind is fear; fear not only for the present but for the future. Until I was in contact with the CDSA I didn’t know what to do.
