This organization continues to be an integral part of the community. Besides providing information about Down Syndrome, it also promotes awareness and proclaims, rightly so, that we are more alike than different. The organization is continuously providing activities for children with Down Syndrome, and the attendance for the annual Buddy Walk grows larger every year.

The Down Syndrome Support Group of Bryan-College Station has given the community so much to be thankful for. The annual Buddy Walk is an opportunity to see first hand that indeed "We're More Alike than Different." You can actually feel the love in the air. The Association and its volunteers have done such a wonderful job in promoting public awareness that the Walk had to be moved to a different location in order to have enough room for all the participants!

A look at the calendar on the Group’s website shows the many activities that they are connected with and participate in from dances and camps to Special Olympics and seminars and beyond. In addition, the support that this Group gives to parents of Down Syndrome children is a much needed service. It lets parents know that they are not alone – that the support of other parents whose children have similar disabilities is immediately available and never ending.

The Great!

I can't think of anything that I would change. I know that if I had the means, I would definitely give financial support to this amazing Group.

DSABV is a great organization that has really benefited my nephew that was born with down syndrome 7 years ago. Without this organization I feel my nephew will not be as advanced as he is. It really brings the community together and everyone helps each other out.

I used to be an aide for special needs kids in Marshall, Texas. I grew to love those kids with all my heart. Those kids were mainly autistic so I didnt know that people with Down Syndrome can also be extremely productive and happy in life. Then I learned one of my Mom's best friends is the president of the College Station Down Syndrome chapter. I have been to Buddy Walks she organizes and I have seen how people with Down Syndrome are more good natured than so called normal people can be and love to dance. I have seen a married couple with Downs and I have seen others with the courage to learn to talk and socialize. This is what I have learned from this organization and much more.

I have a nephew born with Down Syndrome. At first I didn't know what to expect, since I had never really had any experience with this diagnosis. As luck would have it, my nephew was born to an amazing woman, Christy Knight. As soon as she learned of the diagnosis, she immersed herself in learning about Down Syndrome, and started the organization. I have seen it grow from a Buddy Walk of about a 100 people, to one of almost a thousand, and growing every year.
This organization has made a difference in not only the person with Downs, but the families also. It is an organization that looks to include everyone, so that even the siblings (or in my case, an Aunt) can be invloved in as much as they want. The organization is always having clinics, field trips, and parties so that the people with Downs, can have experiences, and learn, just like any one else.

I think the Down Syndrome Association of Brazos Valley is an wonderful
organization. My nephew was born with Down Syndrome and my Brother and Sister in Law strive to make his life just like anybody elses. I admire my sister in law more than anybody I know because she works tirelessly to make
sure Colton and all his friends have a normal life by making the public aware of how special and giving these children can be. Also they can grow up and lead very productive lives. I have got to go to a couple of their Buddy Walks and my heart was filled with all the love I saw that day. In the world we live in this is a very special thing.

The Down Syndrome Association of Brazos Valley was a recommended reference to my family when our child was born with a different set of special needs. The resources and information they had collected and had on their website was a tremendous help in finding what was available to us outside the Early Intervention program.

No "changes" needed, they are a wonderful resource and hope they can continue to provide education for all, including teachers and the general public, of how we truly are more alike than different

My nephew is Colton Kniht & he was born with Downs Syndrome. The role of the Down Syndrome group of Bryan-College Station has provided Colton as well as all of the members with wonderful opportunites such as camp, social interaction functions, education for parents, kids, families and the general public. This orgainization is teaching not only the ones with downs but the families as well, about healthy eating, how important exercise is, social interaction, how to deal with "stares" and questions and most of all, frienships that will last a lifetime. The group has worked hard to involve and educate everyone in the community. It has provided a wonderful teaching tool to the volunteer groups in & around the Bryan-College Station area. The group also is very active with teaching wrtiting, everyday life skills, and how to be productive citizens. This group is awsome.
