Local Support

NDSS works with more than 250 local Down syndrome organizations across the country to provide an array of benefits to help better service the Down syndrome community in their local area. We view our local partners as equal organizations working on behalf of individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the professionals involved with their overall welfare.

Some partners are large operations with full-time staff and others are smaller organizations run by volunteers. Although they perform a variety of services, nearly all have a parent support component. Partner services and programs may include new parent support and education, family meetings, sibling and grandparent support, recreational activities, lending libraries, helplines, regional conferences, partnerships with Down Syndrome Clinics, training for medical professionals and educators, advocacy, and Buddy Walk® events.
