The DSAGC has created a wide variety of programs to meet the needs of
our families and professionals. Three of these programs are arranged
by age group:
- Early Matters Program -
Provides support, social connections and information for families with
children ages birth (and prenatally diagnosed) through age 5.
- School Age Matters Program -
Addresses the unique concerns of families with children ages 6 through
17 with social opportunities, education and advocacy.
- Adult Matters Program -
Designed for adults ages 18 and up. Offers opportunities for sharing,
socializing and learning experiences.
The remaining two programs support all age groups:
The Outreach Program aims
to assist educators, healthcare professionals
and other community members by expanding their understanding of the unique
contributions and capabilities of people with Down syndrome.
The National Adoption Awareness
Program provides information and support to birth parents,
adoptive parents and adoption agencies throughout the United States.
