Welcome! Thanks for Visiting

Down Syndrome Association of Southern Oregon

The Down Syndrome Association of Southern Oregon is a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the means necessary to empower individuals with Down syndrome to reach their full potential. DSASO provides support and resources for persons with Down syndrome and their families. Additionally, DSASO seeks to provide the broader community with information and education to increase awareness and foster positive attitudes regarding people with Down syndrome.

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day--A day we celebrate and honor all individuals with Down syndrome.  This video captures why we believe in our children...all of them.  
 


 

We welcome new and expectant parents, not so new parents, individuals with Down syndrome, friends, family, educators, medical professionals and anyone seeking information about Down syndrome to explore our website!  You will find helpful information, activities and resources to enlighten and encourage you on your journey to build positive relationships with, and support for, the unique person in your life who has Down syndrome.

For those wishing to receive email notices of upcoming events, our new monthly DSASO e-News newsletter or specific programs DSASO offers - you can subscribe to this site. This is a great way to stay current on DSASO happenings.

If you discover questions you have along the way, we encourage you to contact us – we are here to help! 

"Our work will not cease until we have achieved a world in which all members, including those with Down syndrome, are accepted, valued for their uniqueness, respected for their abilities and contributions, and assured the opportunity and choice to create their own path to fulfillment and success."   DSASO Vision Statement
