Dear parents,

Karin Dom’s initiative takes place on the occasion of the International Day of People with Down Syndrome, which we celebrate every year on March 21. The one-time consultations of our specialists aim to support the development of children aged 0-7 years and to support parents. Consultations are free and will be held online (for children from the country), on-site at Karin Dom or in the family’s home (for families from Varna) by Karin Dom specialists.

Counseling aims to support children’s development and support parents. In order to participate in the free consultations, it is necessary to fill out the form and we will contact you for further details.

Karin Dom’s team recommends that support for families expecting a child with Down Syndrome begins before birth, and work with children with Down Syndrome starts from birth. Early childhood intervention services are already available in many places in the country.

The family-oriented approach and work in families are fundamental principles in the provision of the social service Early Intervention of Karin Dom for children aged 0-3 and their families. Empowering families, increasing their competence, awareness, and confidence is an advantage and a guarantee of success in children’s development. The main Early Intervention services are provided in the child’s home, and some of the complementary ones, such as playgroups, toy library, etc. are available in the Karin Dom building.

How to support the development of a child with Down Syndrome? Successful techniques and games – you can read on our website here.

Early intervention is most effective if it takes place in the home environment, on the playground, in a nursery or kindergarten. The involvement of parents, siblings, grandparents, all adults and children who are important to the child facilitates the process of achieving developmental progress, results are more sustainable, and children are included from an early age in the social life of the community.

Children with Down Syndrome make the world more colorful, different and sunny! That’s exactly why on this day, as a sign of support and sympathy, we put on colorful socks!

Patterned, like the chromosomes, when they stain them with fluorescent molecules to detect with the help of a fluorescence microscope the extra third copy of chromosome 21. In fact, this extra chromosome changes the normal course of growth and development of children. But this is not an obstacle for children to smile, communicate, play, learn, create, develop their potential, be as independent as possible.

Consultations are financed under the Karin Dom project by the Medicor Foundation, Liechtenstein.
