A comprehensive medical resource, the clinic offers a multidisciplinary team of care providers including our clinic director/geneticist as well as family physicians with special experience providing comprehensive, compassionate care for individuals with Down syndrome. A clinical care coordinator, psychologist, audiologist, social worker, occupational therapist, speech therapist, physical therapist, and nutritionist add to the clinic's ability to provide a whole-person approach to wellness in a medical home setting.
Each clinician will conduct an assessment and will discuss his or her findings with you. At the end of your visit, you'll receive a collection of all the clinicians' findings and recommendations. Our team will work with you to develop a plan of action. This may include:
working with the primary or consulting doctor, or locating a primary care physician;
scheduling appointments with specialists for additional care;
referring you for other services such as financial planning or job counseling; and
scheduling future visits to the Adult Down Syndrome Clinic as needed, for follow-up care now or reassessment in the future.
Clinic is held on Monday mornings.
The Adult Down Syndrome Clinic is located in the Community Health Services Building at 930 20th Street South on the campus of UAB. Free parking is available adjacent to the building.
