National Down Syndrome Congress

Who We Are

The purpose of the NDSC is to promote the interests of people with Down syndrome and their families through advocacy, public awareness, and information. When we empower individuals and families from all demographic backgrounds, we reshape the way people understand and experience Down syndrome.

What We Do

The NDSC welcomes over 3000 people to our annual convention (coming to Sacramento in July 2017) where parents learn from experts on Down syndrome; self-advocates join together with friends from across the world to learn, share, become empowered; siblings share and learn alongside their peers; and volunteers have the experience of a lifetime by volunteering in an number of capacities.
