What we do
“… more than medical” is a collaborative project with parent and Project Lead, Rebekah Docherty and contributing families from the Down’s Syndrome Community in the UK.
The project takes the form of a booklet of which its content is sourced directly from local family experiences and is designed as an information resource for parents and a tool for professionals beginning from the point of NIPT (non-invasive prenatal testing) discussions and options, through to a postnatal diagnosis.
The goal of this project is to ensure all parents throughout the UK receive current, complete and balanced information about life with a child or adult with a Down’s Syndrome diagnosis. It also provides the opportunity for parents to access local families and support groups directly for information and support.
