The AIM HIGH Infants & Toddlers Parent Group is a collaboration between the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center and the Capital District/North Country Early Childhood Direction Center.

The meetings are held once a month. The purpose of this group is to provide parents an opportunity to participate in monthly informational seminars on a variety of health, education, social and recreational topics and to meet/network with other families. Parents can bring their children! We will have volunteers available, in an adjacent room, which will be set up with age appropriate toys and activities so children can play, socialize and meet new friends!

Our volunteers are fellow parents, professionals, and students from high school Best Buddies Clubs, who have experience working with children with disabilities and are looking forward to working with our children.
