The NADS group, Down Syndrome and More, serves families whose child with Down syndrome has an additional diagnosis, such as Autism or ADHD. The More Than Down Syndrome Retreat is offered twice a year.  During the Retreat, parents learn from experts and share with each other while their child with a dual diagnosis engages in fun activities and is cared for by trained respite workers.  For more information about this program, please contact NADS.

Many of the resources the members of this group have gathered over the years are collected here for the benefit of other families: NADS 2017 Links and Resources for Special Needs

For more information about Down syndrome and Autism, including signs and symptoms, obtaining an evaluation for autism, and related behaviors, see the dual-diagnosis section on the website of the National Down Syndrome Society.
