Help Spread the Word, Change Perceptions, and Open Doors
Perhaps nothing we can do together as an organization will impact lives more than working to improve public perception, dispel myths and misconceptions, and spread awareness about Down syndrome. 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.
Buddy Walk and World Down Syndrome Day, allow us to spread awareness among the greater Atlanta community each year. We also provide disability awareness training to corporations, police, and other groups. We also serve on coalitions and consortiums representing individuals with Down syndrome.
