Silver Steps - for active aging adults with Down syndrome and their families
Fortunately, individuals with Down syndrome are living longer lives than ever before. Unfortunately, the services these individuals need and deserve aren’t always readily available. The Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis is dedicated to working with families and support providers to identify and address the needs of our Active Aging Adult population through programs, resources, education, and advocacy.
