DSNetwork is an amazaing organization. They provide information to assist people with DS and their families to better understand and arrange for services. They provide networking opportunities for people with DS and their families. They promote greater public understanding of people with DS and the syndrome itself. They effect change in policies and behavior to improve services, education, employment and overall quality of life for people with DS and their families. The organization has provided my family and my son Adam, who has Down syndrome with support and seminars and services. Thank you DSNetwork!!
