Hi friends! Any recommendations for a pediatrician/family practice in Vienna, VA? Looking for a doctor in tune with teenagers with DS

Yummy brunch with the DSANV Virtual Cooking Club! Ana enjoyed making and eating all the dishes-veggie omelet, avocado toast and fruit salad. Great info from the nutritionist as well, thank you!
Any artists out there making masks? We have to buy them from somewhere, and I'd rather support an artist with DS.

Hello everyone-- does anyone have experience with McLean Bible Church Tysons Access program-- specifically their Friday Night Respite (every 3rd Friday of the month)? Wondering if this would be fun for my 5 year old daughter (Ds) and 3 year old (NT) son.
We had our daughter's 3-year sign-off meeting last week and it was recommended we redo some of the testing that was last done 3 years ago and also some we didn't do then as we had just adopted her from China at almost 5 years old and her language was still developing then. Her IEP team would like to collect updated academic, social-emotional, behavioral, speech/language, cognitive, occupational therapy, and social history assessment information to "best determine her educational needs and special education identification." I have heard in the past that some parents choose not to consent to any testing for various reasons and I would like to know why parents choose against testing. To give some background information, Annie spent the first 5 years of her life in a Chinese orphanage with no education and she was non-verbal when we adopted her. Her language has since developed well all things considered, but she still has a long way to go. Annie cannot read, write, do math, etc. After three years she still has trouble writing her name. Thank you all for your input!
