The NLDSS is a network of support for families affected by Down Syndrome. Our goal is to provide information and support, and to provide assistance where we can to families as they encounter the Ups and Downs of having a family member with DS. The NLDSS has a mandate to help individuals with DS reach their full potential, and to assist with the obstacles that they may face along the way.
