Trisomia 21 APS
In 2009 in Florence in Viale Volta we inaugurated our Center for the habilitation development of people with Down syndrome or other intellectual handicap, recognized by the Tuscany Region as a health rehabilitation center with executive decree no. 1653 of 9 April 2010, later confirmed during the three-year renewal with executive decree no. 3488 of 3 August 2012, unique in the whole region for completeness of services and number of users, followed globally both in the health and care sectors from birth to adulthood.
Here we are committed to offering parents and their children a complete response, both medically and socially, together with support throughout the evolutionary process, from birth to placement in school and in the world of work. The experience of similar Centers already existing in some Italian cities indicates that people with Down syndrome or other similar handicap can be inserted and integrated into society, as long as they are treated correctly from an early age.
