Welcome to Central Texas!

We know your first questions as you consider a move are about schools and medical care. Our members find that the best source of information on school districts and doctors is other parents in the area. We also encourage all families considering a move to Texas to research schools, medical and community resources, and compare to your current circumstances.

Please contact our office for help reaching out to parents in school districts that you are considering. One of our board members put together a great guide to choosing a school district that we recommend reading.

Many parents and guardians have questions about healthcare resources and the Texas Medicaid Waivers program. Links to information about Medicaid Waiver programs can be found on our General Resources and Health Care Resources pages. Every year, DSACT members help us develop this Member-Generated Healthcare Provider Referral List - with all their recommendations for local professionals. Another wonderful resource are the scorecards issued by The Case for Inclusion.

Sign up for our events and programs for a great introduction to the Down syndrome community in central Texas.
