Walk in the Ballpark

Join us at Busch Stadium for our largest awareness event of the year!  Dance at the pre-game pep rally, walk the warning track before the game, and watch the Cardinals take on the Cubs!

Our vision is for an inclusive community where all people with Down syndrome can achieve their full potential.

Down syndrome occurs in approximately one in every 691 live births, making it the most frequently occurring chromosomal anomaly. There are about 400,000 Americans 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 has information such as 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. 

In-Person and Virtual Programs

The DSAGSL is proud to offer the programming for individuals of all ages and abilities both in-person and virtually.  Each week you can join us on Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube for virtual programs such as Music & Movement, Book Club, and BINGO!  Ready for in-person programs?  Check out all we have planned for Summer 2021 including Playgroups for toddlers & school-aged children, Outdoor Olympic Games for teens and adults, and field trips around St. Louis!
