The Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area is a Bay Area non-profit organization passionate and dedicated to encouraging the unlimited potential in children and adults with Down syndrome since 1998. It consists of a group of caring individuals, educators, therapists and involved community members whose passion and commitment is to serve families who have members born with Down syndrome. We do this through education, advocacy, support groups for the entire family and developmental-based classes for babies, children, teens and adults. Our goal is to enrich children and adult's lives through pre-academic, academic, language skills and social/behavioral interaction, ultimately preparing them for community integration as a valuable participant and contributor.
