Welcome to the Down Syndrome of South Texas website! Our organization strives to provide education, support, and resources to individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and professionals, with special attention in the rural communities.
Our Goals are to TEACH others about Down syndrome by building public awareness of the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome, LEARN more about Down syndrome by providing seminars and workshops from professionals who work with Down syndrome, and CELEBRATE the individuals with Down syndrome who have touched our lives.
The National Down Syndrome Buddy Walk was developed in 1995 to promote acceptance and awareness of people with Down syndrome. We encourage people with Down syndrome to invite “buddies” (friends, families, teachers, etc.) to join them on the Buddy Walk. Every participant helps promote the importance of understanding, acceptance, and awareness.
