Lifelong Awareness, Acceptance and Advocacy for People with Down syndrome.

We envision and strive for an Alabama where individuals with Down syndrome are accepted and included for who they are. We provide hope and support to each person and their families with educational resources and networking opportunities throughout all stages of life.

Advocacy

We educate individuals with Down syndrome, their families and our community about policy issues and give them the advocacy tools they need to effectively engage with their legislators to advocate for change.

Connections

DSA strives to provide connections for healthy lifelong relationships with other families, the community and peers.

 

Education

DSA aims to be the leading information source for all Alabamians regarding Down syndrome, by educating new parents and increasing overall awareness of the public about the amazing abilities of individuals with Down syndrome.
