The goal of awareness is to replace the myths and misconceptions about people with Down syndrome with evidence that they are more alike than different - they share the same hopes and dreams, likes and dislikes; they love their families, value their friends, root for the home team, and cope with the challenges of daily living.

Perhaps nothing we can do as an organization will touch the number of lives, or have more impact on those lives, than working to improve public perception and awareness. Attitudes can be difficult to change and it will not happen without a consistent message that is reinforced over time. For that reason, awareness remains an ongoing priority for DSAA.
