Congratulations! We are here to offer support tailored to your needs with information, education, programming, and connection to relatable families. We would love to warmly welcome you into our local Down syndrome community!
The DSAGC is committed to remaining a distinguished leader and invaluable resource throughout Greater Cincinnati. We will remain responsive and adaptive to the needs of the community we serve. The DSAGC is embarking on a significant campaign - The Next 40!
Every day we make meaningful strides to foster inclusion and to celebrate the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. There is no better place to show your support than through our Annual Buddy Walk.
Our programs focus on therapeutic, recreational, educational and social opportunities for all ages. We tailor our offerings to reflect the need of our local families as we strive to provide valuable support and quality programs for those in our community.
Our tutoring program is offered to expand learning time for children with Down syndrome. It is led by high-quality certified special education instructors. The tutoring program will be individualized and customized via parent/caregiver desires.
iCan Bike uses adapted bicycles, a specialized instructional program and trained staff to enable individuals with disabilities to learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle. Riders attend one 75 minute session each day for five consecutive days where they learn to ride while accompanied and encouraged by volunteer “spotters”. Over the course of the week, we continually adjust the bikes in an effort to challenge riders balance as they gradually discover the skill and joy of riding.
The Independent Living Retreat is a weekend-long experience for adults with Down syndrome looking to gain their own version of independence. The retreat provides opportunities for community service, learning new skills, making friendships and overall growth. There is a strong emphasis on developing and working through individual goals.
The Empowerment Center is furnished with therapeutic equipment, a rock wall, swings, trampolines, climbing mats, toys, games, and electronics. In addition, we have a fully equipped sensory room. We host a wide variety of programs in this space. We also offer Open Hangout, which is available for all ages and abilities!
