Welcome to the NDSC
Founded in 1973, the National Down Syndrome Congress is the country’s oldest national organization for people with Down syndrome, their families, and the professionals who work with them. We provide information, advocacy and support concerning all aspects of life for individuals with Down syndrome, and work to create a national climate in which all people will recognize and embrace the value and dignity of people with Down syndrome.
|“The new registry provides an important resource to individuals with Down syndrome and their families,” said Yvonne T. Maddox, deputy director of the NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), which is funding the registry. “The registry links those seeking volunteers for their research studies with those who most stand to benefit from the research.”||3…2…1…Dance! promotes awareness of the value of individuals with Down syndrome. You can host a dance in your community anytime, anywhere. From a sock hop in your basement, to a black tie event at your country club, 3…2…1…Dance! is always a fun time! Learn more here.|
