About Us

Down Syndrome SA is a state wide service established in 1974. We support people with Down syndrome, their families and carers by offering a broad range of services, from Early Intervention and Family Support, through to preschool and school support to post secondary Life Education, vital leisure and recreation and respite programs and training and development for education and allied health professionals.

We believe that people with Down syndrome have individual differences, abilities and needs and acknowledge that they have the right to:

  • be treated with dignity and respect
  • access services appropriate to their individual needs
  • receive support and assistance in working towards their personal goals
  • aspire to a range of relationships
  • contribute to their own destiny
  • have opportunities for life-long learning
  • be a responsible, contributing member of the society
