DSACT has helped our family see into the future of what is possible for our son. We’ve been able to connect with other families that provide a support network and endless resources so we can make the best decisions. It’s wonderful to know there are always others to help you navigate the unknown and share their perspective.

Thank you so much for donating to DSACT! Your donations allow us to continue to offer the majority of our programs free to members. 

  • $1,000 pays for one student's scholarship to enroll in a college course
  • $500 pays for one of our member families to attend a national Down syndrome conference

Thanks to generous support from our community, we are offering post-secondary scholarships to up to ten DSACT members for the first time in 2014. We are also offering several workshops to parents and educators on topics such as IEP (Individual Education Plan) best practices, advocacy, understanding the learning profile of children with DS, and curriculum modification. 

Looking ahead, we are working to start a speech therapy clinic. This is especially important because, due to the complexity and variation in insurance plans, many of our members do not get the amount of therapy they need. The ability to speak clearly is one of the most important factors in career and educational development for people with DS. Click below to donate to DSACT and help support this exciting new program!

DSACT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible (TAX ID # 74/2577312).
