Behind the Scenes at DSAA

We hope you had an amazing summer and are transitioning well into the back to school routine.


Sheryl Arno
This summer our D.A.D.S group continued to meet, we hosted a Mom's Night Out at GiGi's Playhouse, our networking groups held mom's night out and play date outings. I also had the pleasure of training 400 camp counselors at the beginning of the summer to help inclusive camps work with our children.e


In addition, I have represented the DSAA on the Down Syndrome Consortium. We are working together and partnering on a number of opportunities for our community! More to come! I also serve on the Inclusive Post Secondary Education Consortium where I am working to expand opportunities for students with Down syndrome in these programs. 

I talk with members of our community about their connection with DSAA, I realize most people are familiar with pillar events such as Buddy Walk, our holiday party, our summer social, our new parent workshops, our monthly DADS Group, our Hispanic Group, our community networking groups and social groups on Facebook, but most of you are unfamiliar with the day-to-day work we do to support our mission
