How we Help
DSNetwork offers an array of programs to serve all age groups in the Down syndrome community. From newborns to adults, we are sure that you can find a program for your loved one with Down syndrome and family at DSNetwork Arizona.
DSNetwork has been supporting people touched by Down syndrome since 2002. From the initial diagnosis through school-aged years and beyond, individuals with Down syndrome and their families face a wide range of challenges and find themselves immersed in an ever-changing, often complicated journey to learn how to best support and nurture their loved ones. We are action-oriented – always striving to improve the options and opportunities available for people with Down syndrome. We are committed to ensuring that all individuals with Down syndrome have the opportunity to fully participate in society. Down Syndrome Network helps every step of the way.
Leveraging The Power
Of our collective voice
DSNetwork’s strength come from 20 years of advocacy that champions equitable solutions to critical issues that impact our loved ones with Down syndrome. These solutions are created from a coalition of voices and perspectives that seek a better future for all of those touched by Down syndrome in Arizona.
Because of your support and action, DSNetwork successfully advocated in the AZ legislature to change state law A.R.S. § 36-551 so that Down syndrome becomes an eligible category under the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). This change will reduce the burden on families in the first part of the eligibility process for DDD services.
