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.

Teen Group

The Teen Group is a DSACT group for teens with Down syndrome between the ages of 13-19. The Teen Group meets on the second Friday of each month from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at a local YMCA to build social skills, have fun with friends, and dance. A recreational therapist facilitates the group. Parents are welcome to stay or drop their teen and return. There are also community outings for typical teen activities like swimming, bowling, and going to movies.  If your teen is interested in joining in on the social activities, please email Janet Bryce at jbryce2@austin.rr.com to join the group.
