Welcome to DSACT's Social Groups! Whether you are new to DSACT or have been a member for a while, if you haven't joined your social group, now's your chance. Each social group meets up about once a month to enjoy a nice activity together, allowing the children/teens/adults to play and parents/guardians to mingle.

We encourage children, teens, and adults with Down syndrome to continue their social activities and relationships in the community as much as possible. DSACT social groups are meant to enhance social lives, not be the only form of social activity.

Baby Talk

Baby Talk is a DSACT group for children with Down syndrome between the ages of 0-2 years as well as their parents and siblings. We also welcome any expecting parents to join the group.

Baby Talk meets monthly at a variety of locations. If your family is interested in joining in on the social activities, please become a DSACT member and we will be in touch!*


INKDOTs

InkDots is a DSACT group for children with Down syndrome between the ages of 3-5 years and their siblings.
