Mission 21 refers Trisomy 21 which is the most common form of Down syndrome.
Mission 21 is proudly supported by FLYEfit Gyms
Children with Down syndrome face a range of developmental challenges including cardiac and other health complications, hearing difficulties, problems with their eyesight, low muscle tone and concentration and learning challenges.
The Down Syndrome Centre, which opened in 2014, has a wide range of early intervention services and supports including SKIP (Special Kids Intervention Programme), Team 21 Tots and vital services such as Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy which are directly aimed at helping children with Down syndrome to overcome these challenges.
The Down Syndrome Centre has also created a family focussed centre for parents of the children using the service. The centre is a place for parents to meet, get information and advice, make friends and build support networks and communities.
We provide a wide range of supports for families such as New Parent Evenings, Counselling Service, Siblings Camps, and Grandparent Days. We host monthly seminars for parents which look at important areas such as health, education and financial planning. Our online expert panel also provides personalised advice and help to parents across Ireland.
The Down Syndrome Centre believes that every child with Down syndrome should be given the right supports to enable them to reach their full potential and have the opportunity to develop the skills to live independent and fulfilling lives in their communities.
As we do not receive any government funding, we are appealing to people to make a donation to our Mission 21 campaign to help us to continue our work to help children with Down syndrome and their families.
Thank you for your support.
