Club 21 is a social group for individuals with Down syndrome ages 13+. Held bimonthly, social events include game night, bowling, dances, and more. This is a chance for parents to have a little “time off” while their child socializes.
Coffee & Conversation and PG-13
Coffee and Conversation is a time for parents of children with Down syndrome under 5 to get together and discuss what is going on in their child’s life and share information with other parents.
PG-13 is for parents of Down syndrome children, ages 6-13, to get together and discuss what is going on in their child’s life and share information with other parents.
Community groups are the heart of DSAH. They provide local support, resources, and events for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. In a city as large as Houston, bringing resources to parents is instrumental in meeting our mission and vision. To join a community group, call our office or contact us via email for more information.
COMMUNITY EDUCATION & SUPPORT
DSAH is proud to offer its expertise regarding Down syndrome and its impacts on individuals, families, and communities. We can help improve a school, company, or a non-profit organization’s understanding of intellectual disabilities while also providing much-needed information and support. Please contact our office today to schedule your training!
The purpose of the “Congratulations!” Program is to “congratulate” parents of newborn babies with Down syndrome. In a world where others often express sorrow for the birth of a child with Down syndrome, DSAH says with pride, reassurance, and passion, “Congratulations!” Contact our office or your hospital’s social worker to request a “Congratulations!” gift basket at no cost… or complete this form. Watch this short video about our Congratulations! Program.
