When faced with a new situation, such as having a child with Down syndrome, it is important to get first-hand, real-life information and experiences from families who have lived it. Meeting other families and children with Down syndrome helps to learn what amazing abilities these individuals possess. Joining our Association allows you to be connected in a way that will benefit you and your child.

The quality of life of an individual with Down syndrome has improved significantly over the past few decades, so rather than being disheartened by dated or inaccurate resources, membership to an association such as the DSAYR allows you to learn the new “reality” of living with Down syndrome.
