You can help maximize your baby's developmental potential by starting Early Childhood Education and Intervention as soon as possible.

"It is possible for a child with Down syndrome to succeed in their education and in a career later in life," explains Dr. Kinder. "However, it is crucial to start teaching your baby as soon as possible, as 95% of the brain develops between birth and age 5. I designed these products and techniques to teach Ella soon after she was born, and by two and a half she was reading over 150 words. And even more exciting is that Ella is now successfully completing her elementary education, at her own age level, in a regular classroom - without an aide.

Dr. Kinder's Down Syndrome Petition

To help make a real difference in the lives of the parents and their babies with Down syndrome, Dr. Kinder set up a petition. This petition is aimed at the medical community and requests more training on Down Syndrome for medical students and medical staff.

Please sign Dr. Kinder's Petition, which requests more accurate training for medical students in regard to Down syndrome. Click here.Unfortunately, the diagnosis of Down syndrome is often given in a way that makes parents worry unnecessarily. Often, parents don't receive vital resources and aren't told about The UPside of Down syndrome. Things can change if we pull together and tell the medical community the time has finally come to change the way the diagnosis is presented. Would you please join us by signing this PETITION and asking your friends and family to do the same?

Sign the Petition - click here

Nearly 3,200 people have signed this petition, but we still need your help to reach our goal of 5,000 signatures by the end of the year. Please add your name and help Dr. Kinder make a real difference by providing medical students proper training regarding Down syndrome.
