Brian Chicoine, MD was brought on as Medical Director, and through a NADS partnership with the University of Illinois Chicago, Dennis McGuire, PhD served as the Director of Psychosocial Service.
Sheila and "her boys," as Drs. Chicoine and McGuire were affectionately called, were off on a first of its kind mission to change the care model for aging individuals with Down syndrome. Both of Dr. Chicoine's books were co-authored by Dr. McGuire.

National Association for Down Syndrome | History of NADS

Through the UAP fellowship we obtained the services of Dennis McGuire, who had an extensive background in family counseling.
Dennis was finishing his final year of study for a PhD in social work. He was assigned to NADS 20 hours per week, and in return we provided the UAP with a $10,000 fellowship. inset-adsc-1 Dennis did home visits throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and provided wonderful counseling and referral services. After obtaining his PhD, Dennis was hired by the UAP as a Family Counselor, but NADS was able to negotiate with the UAP to allow us to retain Dennis as our "fellow. It soon became obvious to us that medical conditions were closely related to some of the psychosocial problems we encountered. Therefore we began to search for ways that we might expand the work Dr. McGuire had been doing with our families. Initially Dr. McGuire split his time between the Center and theUAP but in March 1998 he joined the staff at the ADSC full-time as Director of Psychosocial Services. hen the Center opened in 1992 patients were served 2 mornings a month, but by 2011 because of the huge demand, patients are now seen 5 days a week with 2 full-time physicians, a full-time nurse practitioner, 3 certified medical assistants, a full-time RN, a patient representative, a nutritionist, an outreachworker and patient advocate. NADS has always played an active role on the team of the ADSC, and we are very proud of this unique collaboration and the wonderful care teens and adults receive at the Adult Down Syndrome Center. NADS has helped fund the positions of outreach, patient advocate and part of the services provided by Dr. McGuire. In 2011 NADS was presented with a plaque recognizing that NADS has provided more than a million dollars to the ADSC.
