New Parent Breakfast April 2021

New and expectant parents and grandparents are invited to attend a quarterly New Parent Breakfast where you can socialize with other parents of infants with Down syndrome and get some tips on early childhood development.

This April we are pleased to welcome:

Eric Christensen the Program Manager with the Utah Department of Health. He will be speaking about the Integrated Services Program which provides care coordination for families of children with special health care needs. This team works with families on issues like insurance, Medicaid, disability (SSI and Medicaid disability), DSPD, connection with specialty and primary care medical providers, connecting kids to therapies, and helping families connect with early intervention services.

Carley Scalora will be sharing her experience managing a busy schedule with a medically complex kid in the first year of life. She is a solo parent who enjoys crafting, cooking, and watching her son, Calvin, grow. Calvin is a 4-year-old who loves music, coloring, and collecting pretty rocks. Together they enjoy road trips and activities in between appointments and preschool.

  • Calvin Curtis is UDSF's Platinum Plus Sponsor for our Mighty Steps for Down Syndrome Walk 2020. His generosity and support over the past few years have made a real difference in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome and their families across Utah.

  • Gossner Cache Silver Sponsor MS 2019

  • At Catalyst Behavior Solutions we prepare our clients to reach their full potential and achieve future success through the use of evidence-based and data-driven treatment methods. We believe in the growth of people of all abilities.
