Recently, a mother of a child with Down Syndrome from Mexico contacted our local Down Syndrome association. She does not speak English and was seeking help for her son. After studying in Spain in college more than 15 years ago, my Spanish is a bit rusty, but I was able to correspond with her and help her find resources in Spanish for families of children with Down Syndrome.

Additionally, families can use “Google Translate” to translate pages from English to Spanish. However, the instructions to use Google translate are in English, so feel free to share the following tips with Spanish-speaking families looking for down syndrome resources in Spanish. http://translate.google.com/?tl=es#en/es/ “Poner el texto en el cajina, y puse el buton que dice “translate” en azul.”
Harrison and I hope this information helps families from all over the world!
