For Families

As the lifespan for individuals with Down syndrome has increased, so too has the need for expert and trusted resources that can guide families as they meet the opportunities and challenges that accompany supporting a family member with Down syndrome.

One of the most important aspects of the Kennedy Willis Center is its role as an information resource to families, educators, care providers, and health professionals. 

The Center offers expert guidance on a wide range of topics related to life planning, including:

  • Life planning
  • Letters of intent
  • Guardianship
  • Special needs trusts
  • Aging
  • Vocational education
  • Referrals to expert medical, financial, and legal resources
