DSAGSL is committed to being the most comprehensive resource on
Down syndrome in the area

Down syndrome occurs in approximately one in every 691 live births, making it the most frequently occurring chromosomal disorder. There are about 400,000 Americans diagnosed with Down syndrome and approximately 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome each year in the United States.

Family Support Programs

Family support can start as early as a prenatal diagnosis. Our Expectant Parent section provides information and resources specific to those who are expecting a baby with Down syndrome. Many of our families find out that their baby has Down syndrome after birth. The New Parent section shares information about our New Parent packet and our New Parent Support Network as well as resources for Grandparents.

Advocacy & Awareness

Join us in our mission to benefit the lives of individuals with Down syndrome.

Part of our mission is to benefit the lives of people with Down syndrome through public awareness and advocacy.  We do this through events, programming and with the help of partner organizations.

The goal of the partnership is to provide support for educators, parents and professionals seeking to build a meaningful education for students with Down syndrome.
