KIIDS is a non-profit organization based in Southern New Jersey. Our mission at KIIDS is threefold:  to provide parents of children with Down syndrome with the information and the necessary resources to help their child reach their full potential; to support the person with Down syndrome as well as their family through social gatherings and educational seminars; and to spread knowledge and information to medical professionals, educational professionals, and the public about Down syndrome. Throughout the year, we have family get-togethers, host educational presentations and provide various opportunities for sharing information and support. We also make members aware of other workshops, symposiums, and events that may be hosted by other groups & institutions.
