Our mission is to provide services and support for children and adults with Down syndrome and their families in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. Through partnerships with other agencies, medical professionals, educators, and parents, the DSASTX gathers and shares resources and information for those with Down syndrome and their families.
The DSASTX provides opportunities for families to foster friendships and offer mutual support through Parent Information Meetings, community-based social activities, special events, and educational programs.
The ultimate goal is to promote awareness and inclusion in the community.
