MDSC Affiliates

We are proud to support the important work of two organizations through their affiliations with the MDSC- Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome (D.A.D.S.) and the Down Syndome-Autism Connection (DSAC).

Support Group Leader Retreat

MDSC is committed to ensuring that families and individuals with Down syndrome have the local supports and resources they need. Since 2014, we have brought together dozens leaders in the Down syndrome community from across the state for a two-day Support Group Leader Retreat.

Over the weekend, Support Group and Play Group Leaders gather to share experiences and strategize how to advance our mutual goals of strengthening supports for people with the Down syndrome and their families whatever their location, background or life circumstances.
