Down Syndrome Information Act



During the 2016 legislative session, a bill was passed that requires pediatricians and other healthcare providers to share information with parents who have received a pre- or postnatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.

This past March, the Arc of Whatcom County (with support from DOH/WSLI) led a webinar for individuals or organizations who support individuals with Down syndrome, self-advocates, medical professionals, and anyone interested in engaging your local medical communities in order to support the Down syndrome Information Act.

Watch the webinar here.

For information on a free booklet for families of children newly diagnosed, as well as support and information provided by the Washington State Department of Health, visit our new Down Syndrome page.
