With Down Syndrome Awareness Month coming to a close, we want to use this month as a call to action! Here at Down Syndrome Indiana, spreading awareness and advoacy around Down syndrome is one of our primary missions. We fulfill this mission through education, advocacy, awareness, and more!
How can we harness this momentum of Down Syndrome Awareness Month and carry over this passion and energy year-round?
Schedule a FREE Presentation
One of the best ways to spread awareness in your community is to schedule a presentation through Down Syndrome Indiana. Down Syndrome Indiana offers free Awareness Presentations to students, free Education Presentations to educational teams and professionals, and free Healthcare Presentations to health professionals. We have completed over 500 presentations to the community, and it is one of our favorite things to do!
Volunteer With Us
One way to engage with both our organization and community is through volunteering! We offer in-office volunteer opportunities as well as major community event volunteer opportunities. Are you interested in getting involved? Sign up for our volunteer newsletter at https://dsindiana.org/get-involved/dsienews/ or email Volunteer@dsindiana.org to learn more!
Share our Resources
Down Syndrome Indiana develops research-based and reliable resources for parents and educators through Toolkits. We continuously update and add materials to these resources. If you are looking for specific materials or resources, we are open to forming specific materials for your group or workplace!
