October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month

 

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a chance to spread awareness. During the month of October, we celebrate people with Down syndrome and make people aware of our abilities and accomplishments. It’s not about celebrating disabilities, it’s about celebrating abilities.

The mission of DSOSN is to promote a positive understanding of Down syndrome in the community, and to be a source of support, education and information for individuals and families affected by Down syndrome throughout Southern Nevada.  It is our vision to one day see individuals with Down syndrome accepted throughout the community and respected for their abilities and contributions.

Please share with those you come in contact with in the community

the importance of acceptance, inclusion and awareness about

Down syndrome and how the DSOSN is

here to help those affected by

Down syndrome in our community.
