Posted on Sep 27, 2011 | 0 comments
Looking for up-to-date Down syndrome resources in person? You’ll find a wealth of materials including books and videos at PAMF’s Mountain View Center Community Health Resource Center – thanks to generous donations from the Silicon Valley Down Syndrome Network and PAMF Pediatrician Dr. Jane Chen. The library is free and open to all members of the community.
“The Down syndrome library is a great resource for our community,” says Dr. Chen. “I donated several books and videos to the library that helped me learn more about the things that I can do as a parent to help my daughter who has Down syndrome. In the Bay Area there is a wonderful supportive community of families who have children with Down syndrome, and the Silicon Valley Down Syndrome Network has very generously donated resources to the library. We are very happy that PAMF has provided the support to house this Down syndrome library.”
Visitors to the library can browse or check out materials from the collection to:
- Better understand Down syndrome.
- Find resources on working with special individuals.
- Learn how to help children and adults with Down syndrome communicate with their world.
The library collection also includes the complete Signing Time video collection – perfect for all ages.
