DSI Community Groups

Down Syndrome Indiana recognizes that there are varied interests among the Down syndrome community. Examples include geographical considerations, cultural considerations, educational considerations, and age considerations. When there are common interests among some families that differ from interests of other families, then Down Syndrome Indiana recognizes the benefits of a community group among these families. When these interests are contemplated in the Down Syndrome Indiana mission statement, then Down Syndrome Indiana recognizes the benefits of distributing some of its resources to the community group.
